Related Club News staff pick Bafana starting XI for World Cup qualifier with Burkina Faso

Posted: 6 October 2017 Time: 11:00

So, who should start for Bafana Bafana when they host Burkina Faso in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Group D qualifier at FNB Stadium on Saturday?

Coach Stuart Baxter has a big task ahead of him and he has to pick the right team to overcome the Burkinabe.

Itumeleng Khune makes a return to the squad and he’ll have a new central defensive partnership in front of him, with Mulomowandau Mathoho and Thulani Hlatshwayo unavailable.

Baxter started with Andile Jali on the bench in both games against Cape Verde in September and Bafana missed his presence in the centre of midfield. Upfront, Dino Ndlovu and Lebo Mothiba are the new options for Baxter after Tokelo Rantie was left out.

The team pick their preferred starting line-ups.

Tshepang Mailwane
Khune, Frosler, Gould, Madisha, Langerman, Zwane, Jali, Zungu, Dolly, Tau, Ndlovu
