South Africa vs Senegal
This is the one of the biggest weeks in the history of the Senior Men’s National Team, Bafana Bafana

As you can see from the travelling party, there's no Itumeleng Khune (yet). The Kaizer Chiefs keeper was injured against Chippa United on the weekend, and fans are hoping he will recover in time for the Senegal game.

Some Twitter followers are joking from the squad photographs that they know who the starting keeper is going to be. 

Bafana Bafana start the defining week with a must win match against the Teranga Lions on Friday at Peter Mokaba Stadium. The match kicks off at 19h00. They then travel to Senegal for the last group match which will be played on Tuesday in Dakar.

FIFA ordered the first match to be replayed after the home team had won the encounter 2-1 through goals from captain Thulani Hlatshwayo and Thulani Serero; citing that the match official had tempered with the outcome.

Despite having lost to Cape Verde in both matches, Stuart Baxter’s men know that winning the two games against Senegal will guarantee them a place among the elite in Russia.

Most players have reported for camp apart from Kaizer Chiefs players who were travelling from Eastern Cape on Monday.
