Elephants suffer Tiene setback

Mamelodi Sundowns

Sundowns supporters will remember him as 'Chico', but unfortunately for Tiene's fans he has been ruled out for next month's clash.

The 31-year-old left-back injured his thigh during Montpellier’s French Ligue 1 tie with Evian on Saturday and will miss the Elephants' qualifier against Senegal on October 12 in Abidjan.

It has also been confirmed that the second leg of the final qualifier will be played in Morocco because the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium in Dakar is unavailable until November.
