Robyn Johannes replaces injured Thulani Hlatshwayo for Bafana's World Cup qualifier with Burkina Faso

Posted: 2 October 2017 Time: 09:58

Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has called up Cape Town City captain Robyn Johannes as a replacement for injured Bidvest Wits skipper Thulani 'Tyson' Hlatshwayo.

Tyson has been ruled out of Saturday's 2018 World Cup qualifier with Burkina Faso at FNB Stadium with a knee problem.

Johannes has impressed for the Citizens since their formation last season. The 31-year-old has three international caps, having made his debut in a COSAFA Cup match against the Seychelles on 26 February 2005.

Baxter yesterday also roped in Mamelodi Sundowns centre-back Motjeka Madisha as a replacement for suspended Kaizer Chiefs defender Erick Mathoho.

The Brit's other options in central defence are SuperSport United duo Clayton Daniels and Morgan Gould.

Bafana are bottom of Group D with a point from three games - four points behind Senegal and five shy of Cape Verde and the Burkinabe.
