Igesund makes wholesale changes
Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund made massive changes to the squad that played to a 0-0 draw in the opening match of the 2013 Afcon as he hopes for an inspired performance against Angola.
The match, taking place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, kicks off at 5pm (CAT, GMT +2) and will be live on SS HD2, SS4 and live streaming at supersport.com.
Former Bafana striker Benni McCarthy, a television analyst on SuperSport, was one of those who reacted positively to the changes.
Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala was one of those left out with Dean Furman getting a run. Also making the start line is May Mahlangu while Katlego Mphela replaces Lehlohonolo Majoro. Lerato Chabangu and Kagisho Dikgacoi were left out due to injuries.
“Seen the line-up for Bafana,it looks very interesting. Should be a good playing side and get us goals. All the very best guys. Do us proud,” he said via Twitter (@bennimccarthy17).
“Parker, Rantie, Mphela all in starting line-up. I like this so hopefully the midfield can supply these lot to get us those much needed goals,” he said added.
