Goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune will lead Bafana Bafana as captain when they face Cameroon in the crucial 2017 Gabon Africa Cup of Nations clash against Cameroon this afternoon (Saturday, 26 March 2016) at Stade Limbe Omnisport in Limbe, Cameroon.

Kickoff is at 16h30 South African time (15h30 local time).

Khune returns to goals after he missed South Africa’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Angola in November last year due to injury.

The defensive dutuies have been given to Anele Ngcongca at right back, Thabo Matlaba at left back while Thulani Hlatshwayo will partner Erick Mathoho in central defence.

The middle of the park sees the return of Hlompho Kekana who has not played for Bafana Bafana since the goallesss draw in the international friendly match against New Zealand in Auckland two years ago (30 May 2015).

Kekana will control the proceedings with Andile Jali who recently recovered from a dislocated shoulder. On the wings head coach Shakes Mashaba has opted for Mandla Masango and Mpho Makola, while the duo of Thamsanqa Gabuza and Tokelo Rantie have been tasked with finding goals for Bafana Bafana.

It is four changes from Bafana Bafana’s last match against Angola in Durban – Khune, Ngcongca, Jali and Kekana coming in for Jackson Mabokgwane, Rivaldo Coetzee, Dean Furman and Bongani Zungu.

Two players on the bench could earn their first caps – defender Sifiso Hlanti of Bidvest Wits and striker Prince Nxumalo.
