Stuart Baxter names Bafana Bafana starting XI for COSAFA Cup plate final with Botswana

Posted: 8 June 2018 Time: 13:31

Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has named his starting line-up for the COSAFA Cup plate final, making just one change.

Bafana will take on neighbouring Botswana at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium, with kick-off set for 17h00 in Polokwane.

After beating Namibia 4-1 in the plate semi-finals earlier this week, Baxter has brought in Chippa United's Paseka Mako for suspended Maritzburg United midfielder Fortune Makaringe on the left flank.

Bafana were knocked out of the tournament proper with a loss on penalties to minnows Madagascar in their first match at the quarter-final stage.

The true final, a repeat of last year's edition, will be between champions Zimbabwe and Zambia at the same venue on Saturday. 

Bafana XI: Pieterse (GK), Xulu (c), Madisha, Ngezana, Modiba, Mako, Meyiwa, Ndlovu, Links, Maboe, Moon 

Subs: Bvuma (GK), Kubheka (GK), Fielies, Webber, Mosiatlhaga, Foster, Singh
