Bafana Bafana are set to be minus the services of Sbusiso Khumalo, Luvolwethu Mpeta and Siyabonga Mpontshane when they take on Ivory Coast in an international friendly match set for Mbomela Stadium on November 30.
The trio, who were part of Bafana Bafana's recent Afcon qualifying matches against both Sudan and Nigeria, are set to be involved in the Telkom Knockout Cup final featuring Supersport United and Platinum Stars on November 29 at the Orlando Stadium.
United coach Gordon Igesund has confirmed that players from both Matsatsantsa and Dikwena are set to be excused from national team fixture next weekend.
"An agreement has been reached that players from both SuperSport and Platinum Stars are not going to be part of the national team, because we are playing the Final on November 30," said Igesund.
