Da Gama to give youngsters a run

Bafana

Da Gama reveals there will be changes from the side that defeated Guinea-Bissau 3-1 in Durban on Saturday as he looks to give all the players in his squad some game-time over the two matches.

"We said prior to the game [against Guinea-Bissau] that we'll make six changes and we did that. We'll do that again and give everybody an opportunity to play," Da Gama told reporters.

"The two youngsters [Phakamani Mahlambi and Luther Singh] will play. It’s important … results are important too, but we must be brave enough to give these youngsters an opportunity to play as that is only way we'll able to move forward."  

Da Gama reveals that he has been very impressed with the attitude of all his players this week in the build-up to the matches.

"It was a great collective week from everybody. I think this was one of the best weeks I have had with the team and I really enjoyed it. The players were very professional, everything was just spot on. I’m very happy.”

South Africa will be looking to extend their team record run of 16 matches without defeat when they take on the Angolans.
