Bafana Bafana players, November 2022
The home team will be looking to extend their winning run when they square off with the 2006 World Cup participants.

South Africa will go head to head with Angola in an international friendly match at Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.

Bafana Bafana are coming into the encounter in great form having made it three wins in a row when they defeated Mozambique on Thursday.
Coach Hugo Broos has indicated that he won't make too many changes to the team that faced the Mambas.
The Belgian tactician is keen to ensure that Bafana maintain their winning momentum ahead of next March's 2023 Afcon qualifiers.
GOAL takes a look at how South Africa could start against their Southern African rivals. 

  • Ronwen Williams, Bafana Bafana, March 2022

    GOALKEEPER - Ronwen Williams

    The Bafana captain will be determined to make amends following his unconvincing performance during Bafana's 2-1 win over Mozambique. 

  • Sydney Mobbie Bafana Bafana.

    RIGHT-BACK - Nyiko Mobbie

    The Sekhukhune United star impressed with his overlapping runs during the win over the Mambas and he grabbed an assist.

    LEFT-BACK - Aubrey Modiba

    The Polokwane-born full-back is slowly establishing himself as Bafana's first-choice left-back having produced consistent performances for the national team.

  • Siyanda Xulu, Bafana Bafana, March 2021

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Siyanda Xulu

    The Azerbaijan-born defender could get the nod ahead of Rushine de Reuck who endured a poor match against Mozambique.

  • Grant Kekana, Bafana Bafana, November 2022

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Grant Kekana

    The University of Pretoria academy product was rock-solid at the heart of the South African defence in midweek and he will be keen to maintain his good form.

  • Miguel Timm, Bafana Bafana, November 2022

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Miguel Timm

    The 2022 MTN8 Final Man of the Match was praised by Broos with his ability to perform consistently for both the national team and his club, Orlando Pirates.

  • Teboho Mokoena, Bafana Bafana, August 2021

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Teboho Mokoena

    The Mamelodi Sundowns star is a permanent fixture in Broos' midfield and he will pose a threat to Angola with his long range shooting ability. 

  • Bongokuhle Hlongwane, Bafana Bafana, June 2021

    LEFT FORWARD - Bongokuhle Hlongwane

    The Pietermaritzburg-born forward grabbed a brace against the Mambas and he will be eager to continue his scoring form when he faces Palancas Negras.



  • Themba Zwane, Bafana Bafana & Mohamed Kamara, Sierra Leone, September 2022

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Themba Zwane

    The veteran playmaker, who was one of Bafana's standout performers in midweek, is the heartbeat of the national team's attack having grabbed an assist against Mozambique.

  • Alex Bangura, Sierra Leone & Kgaogelo Sekgota, Bafana Bafana, November 2022

    RIGHT FORWARD - Kgaogelo Sekgota

    The speedster, who injected some needed urgency and speed to Bafana's attack after coming on as substitute against the Mambas, could be rewarded with a starting berth.

  • Zakhele Lepasa Bafana Bafana.

    CENTRE FORWARD - Zakhele Lepasa

    Broos has backed the 25-year-old who has failed to score for Bafana since making his return to the national team two months ago and he might lead the attack once again.
