Johannesburg - Kagisho Dikgacoi has been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad that will face Brazil at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday because of injury.

According to the website, the Crystal Palace midfielder is suffering from backache after playing the full 90 minutes of the Eagles' 1-1 draw with Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

SAFA have confirmed that there will be no replacement called up in his place, because Bafana head Gordon Igesund believes he has enough cover in that position.

The hosts will have a training session at the Orlando Stadium as well as FNB Stadium ahead of the clash against the five-time World Cup winners.
