Broos has made changes to the starting line from the last game against Ethiopia with Ngcobo, Letsoalo, Hlongwane, Makgopa getting the nod to start.

Mothobi Mvala, Ethan Duncan Brooks, Vincent Pule and Tshegofatso Mabasa have been relegated to the bench.

With seven points from three games, Bafana Bafana need a win at all cost this evening.
