Stuart Baxter has announced Bafana Bafana’s starting XI for tonight’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Senegal in Dakar.

Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly come on for Kamohelo Mokotjo and Lebogang Manyama in the midfield, while Sibusiso Vilakazi and Percy Tau will continue to lead the attack.

Bafana Bafana XI: Khune (c), Mkhize, Hlanti, Daniels, Gould, Furman, Zungu, Zwane, Tau, Dolly, Vilakazi
