Will Ntseki's shirts inspire the country?


As Molefi Ntseki prepares to announce his Bafana Bafana squad on Tuesday for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, the talk is still about his attire in the last match.

Ntseki pitched up in a traditional African shirt when South Africa played against Mali in the Nelson Mandela Challenge in Port Elizabeth earlier this month as Themba Zwane and Dean Furman gave Ntseki his first victory.

Now with his first official assignment against Ghana in the AFCON qualifiers, all eyes will be on the Bafana coach's shirts to see if they will inspire the country to the finals in Cameroon in 2021.

South Africa will take on Ghana in Accra on November 14 before hosting Sudan at home on November 17.

"I am an African. You will see more of African design in my dress code," Ntseki told KickOff.com on Sunday after watching the league game between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs accompanied by assistant coach Arthur Zwane.

"It was bought in Port Elizabeth to support the local market," he added.

Ntseki is expected to keep the team that did duty against Mali, with the possibility of Andile Jali and Thabo Nodada being surprise inclusions.

Both Lebo Mothiba and Percy Tau are expected to be available for selection again after missing the Mandela Challenge due to injuries.
