TEAM PREDICTION: How Bafana Bafana could line up against Guinea

Bafana coach Hugo Broos confirmed Bongukuhle Hlongwane, Fagrie Lakay and Goodman Mosele won’t face Guinea, but could play against France.

With the match against France set to take place on Tuesday, Broos is sure to balance his squad carefully as he looks to test out all his options over these two friendlies.

 

“Bongukuhle Hlongwane and Fagrie Lakay, they had some problems with their visa, so they will be here tomorrow morning,” Broos said on Thursday, as quoted by iDiski Times.

“My plans were already before the two games that those two guys will be playing next Tuesday against France, so I didn’t count on them for the game of tomorrow.Mosele came with an injury from Pirates on Sunday but he’ll be back in training on Saturday. We don’t take a risk with him in the game (against Guinea).”

HERE IS THE UPDATED BAFANA BAFANA SQUAD:

Goalkeepers (3): Ronwen Williams (SuperSport United), Bruce Bvuma (Kaizer Chiefs), Veli Mothwa (AmaZulu)

Defenders (9): Nyiko Mobbie (Sekhukhune United), Khuliso Mudau (Mamelodi Sundowns), Terrence Mashego (Cape Town City), Lyle Lakay (Mamelodi Sundowns), Rushine De Reuck (Mamelodi Sundowns), Siyanda Xulu (unattached), Athenkosi Mcaba (Stellenbosch FC), Nkosinathi Sibisi (Golden Arrows), Bandile Shandu (Orlando Pirates)
