Bafana & Botswana Starting XIs Announced

Bafana Bafana and Botswana confirmed their starting line-up for this afternoon’s COSAFA Cup encounter at King Zwelithini Stadium.

Bafana are coming to this match under a bit of pressure after sharing the spoils with Namibia in the opening match.

Coach Morena Ramoreboli understands that anything less than a win this afternoon would put themselves in a difficult position, when it comes to qualifying for the next round.

Meanwhile, Zebras knows very well a draw would push them closer to the knockout stages after they beat Eswatini in their opening match.

They also have a bit of advantage as they know Ramoreboli’s style of play since he is coaching at Botswana Premier League champions Jwaneng Galaxy.

Bafana have dominated this fixture and beaten the Zebras in four out of their last five clashes at the COSAFA Cup.

Here is how they line up:

Bafana XI: Barr, Makume, Mohamme, Sikhakhane, Mogaila, Cele, Human, Mthethwa, Lakay, Rayners, Mabasa.

Botswana XI: Malepela, Tlhalefang, Kgamanyane, Skweyiya, Legopelo, Velaphi, Modingwane, Mabaya, Ditsele, Kopelang, Mangolo
