Shakes sticks with Mabokgwane

23 May 2015, 16:27Wade Pretorius - Sport24

Cape Town - South Africa coach Shakes Mashaba has named his starting XI for the practice match against Malawi at the Mogwase Stadium.

Jackson Mabokgwane again starts in the goals and retains the captain's armband. 

The Black Aces shot-stopper appears the front-runner to lead Bafana Bafana at the Cosafa Cup.

Moeketsi Sekola, the Free State Stars striker who won the PSL's Golden Boot, has dropped to the bench for the national team's final practice match ahead of the Cosafa Cup quarter-final against Botswana.

Platinum Stars winger Tlou Segolela, who was called up to the squad earlier this week, has been selected to start Friday's match with fellow new recruits Mduduzi Nyanda and Lebogang Manyama starting amongst the subsitutes.

AmaZulu left-back Marc van Heerden has overcome an injury concern to not only remain in the squad but has done enough to earn a spot in the starting lineup against Malawi.

Bafana Bafana starting XI:

Mabokgwane (c), Nhlapho, Van Heerden, Daniels, Madisha, Sangweni, Motupa, Morena, Bhengu, Segolela, Lark.


Goss, Mpoto, Mxoyana, Nyanda, Manyama, Khumalo, Sekola, Ekstein.

The match kicks off at 15:00.

On Sunday, South Africa will face Botswana at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace for a place in the competition's semi-finals.
