Four changes for Bafana



South Africa have made just four changes on Saturday for the international against Algeria as coach Gordon Igesund showed more of his hand going into the African Nations Cop finals.

Bafana v Algeria Text Commentary Highlights

He has changed the left hand side after a disappointing showing by both Tsepo Masilela and Siphiwe Tshabalala in Tuesday’s loss to Norway, bringing in the flying Thabo Matlaba and Bernard Parker.

Matlaba now has a chance to stake a strong claim for a place in the starting line-up after his rampaging performance against Norway.

Dean Furman is brought into the midfield in place of Reneilwe Letsholonyane but Kagisho Dikgacoi keeps the defensive midfielder role in front of the back.

There is start for Thulani Serero, likely to slot in behind Katlego Mphela in attack. Serero is in need of game time after a long spell out of the game with a groin injury.

Igesund keeps Itumeleng Khune in goal, confirming his role as the first choice and keeping consistency at the back with Anele Ngcongca, Siyabonga Sangweni and Bongani Khumalo.

Thuso Phala’s man of the match performance against Norway sees him again on the right wing with another chance to stake a claim for a place against the Cape Verde Islands at Soccer City next Saturday.

South Africa: 16-Itumeleng Khune, 5-Anele Ngcongca, 14-Bongani Khumalo, 21-Siyabonga Sangweni, 11-Thabo Matlaba, 18-Thuso Phala, 13-Kagisho Dikgacoi, 15-Dean Furman, , 17-Bernard Parker, 10-Thulani Serero, 9-Katlego Mphela.
