Bafana Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki has made two changes to his starting lineup to face Sao Tome and Principe in this afternoon’s AFCON qualifier at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium.
Mamelodi Sundowns full-back Lyle Lakay will make his national team debut after being roped in as a replacement for the injured Innocent Maela while Bongani Zungu’s solid performance off the bench has earned him a starting berth ahead of Kamohelo Mokotjo.
Ntseki has once again opted to start without an out-and-out striker however Kermit Erasmus has recovered from injury and makes the bench.
