Bafana's Shakes Mashaba backs Kamohelo Mokotjo, Mosa Lebusa for Costa Rica, Honduras games

Posted: 1 October 2015 Time: 13:47

South Africa coach Ephraim Mashaba is confident FC Twente midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo and Ajax Cape Town left-back Mosa Lebusa will add "massive value" to his squad.

Mashaba called up the pair for friendlies with Costa Rica and Honduras on October 9 and 14 in Central America.

"We sat down as the technical team and were satisfied with the two players," said Mashaba.

"They will add massive value to the team."

'Shakes' drafted in the duo following an ankle injury to Orlando midfielder Oupa Manyisa and the unavailability of Ajax striker Prince Nxumalo, who recently suffered an epileptic attack.

Bafana Bafana's game with Costa Rica will start at 04h00 (SA time) at Boltodano Bricenio Stadium in the city of Liberia.

The match with Honduras will take place at Metropolitano Stadium in San Pedro Sula, with kick-off at midnight (SA time).
