Bafana Announce Starting XI For Mozambique

Bafana Bafana have announced their starting XI to face Mozambique in the Cosafa Cup semi-final.

South Africa could reach their fourth final of the competition, having won it every time they reached the final.

Guest nation Senegal awaits in the final, who, in the other semi-final, came back from two goals down against eSwatini to draw 2-2, before winning the penalty shootout 3-0.

Bafana have faced Mozambique four times so far, winning three of those games and drawing the other.

Mozambique qualified for the semi-final despite starting the tournament with a 0-0 draw with Zimbabwe and a 1-0 defeat to Group B winners Senegal. However, they turned their fortunes around by beating Malawi 2-0 and Namibia 1-0 to finish in second place.

Bafana, meanwhile, are still unbeaten, having defeated Botswana and eSwatini 1-0 before thrashing Lesotho 4-0 and drawing 0-0 with Zambia in their final Group A match.

Here is how they line up:

Bafana XI: Mothwa, Mobbie, Ngobeni, De Reuck, Ngcobo, Dube, Maart, Sithebe, Mkhulise, Saleng, Letsoalo

Subs: Vyver, Mphahlele, Sibiya, Sibanyoni, Konqobe, Maboe, Malinga, Brooks

Mozambique XI: Silvane, Nangy, Muze, Pelembe, Mapangane, Alexandre, Ernesto, Thauzene, Tesoura, Nhaca, Macaime
