Bafana Bafana have made three changes to the team preparing for the COSAFA Cup quarter-final encounter with Botswana on Sunday following injuries to three players. Athenkosi Dlala, Puleng Tlolane and Cole Alexander have been pulled out of the original squad due to nagging injuries and have been replaced by Mduduzi Nyanda, Tlou Segolela (Platinum Stars) and Lebogang Manyama of SuperSport United. The team was given an entire Wednesday off and will leave for Rustenburg on Thursday morning where preparations for the encounter against Botswana will continue.
On Friday, Bafana Bafana are expected to play a practice match against Malawi as part of coach Shakes Mashaba finalising his squad for Sunday’s crucial encounter.
