Igesund knows his defence
Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana head coach, Gordon Igesund, says that he knows which players he will start in his defence, and says he has complete confidence in his players.
According to the soccerladuma.co.za website
, Igesund was dealt a blow in the lead up to the game against the Central African Republic with the news that first, Tsepo Masilela, and later, Siyabonga Sangweni, would not be available for the game.
Tebogo Langerman and Erick Mathoho were then called up in place of the injured duo, and Igesund says that he knows which of his defenders will start in Saturday’s crucial qualifier.
The national team’s head coach said, “We were unfortunate to lose Siyabonga Sangweni and Tsepo Masilela at the back. However, with the squad that I’ve selected I’ve definitely got players who can do the job and I think it’s a great opportunity for them. I have selected my back four, I know who’s going to be playing, and I think we’ll be fine there.”
While it remains to be seen who will start in Igesund’s Bafana backline, it is thought that Anele Ngcongca will retain his place at right-back, with Morgan Gould’s experience likely to be called upon in the centre of defence.
