Bafana unchanged for Morocco
Durban - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund has named an unchanged starting line-up for the final Group A match of their Africa Cup of Nations campaign against Morocco at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday.
Striker Tokelo Rantie passed a late fitness test on an injured ankle, which he twisted in the 2-0 victory over Angola on Wednesday.
Fellow forward Lehlohonolo Majoro (shin) is listed as available among the substitutes, although it is unlikely he will feature.
Midfielders Kagisho Dikgacoi and Lerato Chabangu are also available once again after they missed the last match with knee and groin problems respectively.
Rain and a fast-filling Moses Mabhida Stadium greeted the Bafana players as they took to the field for their warm-up. Half an hour before the start, the heavy cloud cover that was building all afternoon eventually turned to rain, although that did little to dampen the spirits of the home fans, who were quickly taking their seats ahead of the clash.
Bafana need a draw, and one point, to secure their place in the quarter-finals, while Morocco must win to progress to the playoffs.
South Africa: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Bongani Khumalo (captain), Siyabonga Sangweni, Tsepo Masilela, Dean Furman, May Mahlangu, Thuso Phala, Bernard Parker, Tokelo Rantie, Katlego Mphela.
Morocco: Nadir Lamyaghri, Abderrahim Achchakir, Ahmed Kantari, Mehdi Benatia, Abdelaziz Barrada, Youssef El-Arabi, Youssef Kaddioui, Abdelhamid El Kaoutari, Issam El Adoua, Chahir Belghazouani, Kamel Chafni.
