Midfielder Dean Furman, forward Sibusiso Vilakazi and defender Mzikayise Mashaba are all out injured, while Kaizer Chiefs centre back Tefu Mashamaite has withdrawn because of family commitments.

Tshepo Gumede of Orlando Pirates comes in for Mashamaite, while his fellow Buccaneer Ntsikelelo Nyauza replaces Mashaba. Bidvest Wits’ Jabulani Shongwe comes in for Furman, and Black Leopards striker Siphelele Ntshangase is in for Vilakazi.

Bafana will begin training on Monday.
