Cape Town - Bafana Bafana assistant coach Owen da Gama has made eight changes to the side to face Mozambique in an international friendly at the Estadio Nacional do Zimpeto in Maputo.

Kick-off is at 19:00.

Da Gama previously hinted in a press release issued by the South African Football Association (SAFA) that he would be looking to make a few changes from the side that beat Senegal 2-1 in their 2018 Soccer World Cup qualifier last Saturday.

The national Under-23 coach also revealed that Ajax Cape Town defender Rivaldo Coetzee has been ruled out through injury which would give him a chance to assess the other defending options available to him.

Substitutes: Mhlongo, Khune, Mbekile, Dolly, Makola, Patosi, Vilakazi, Serero, Rogers, Grobler.

Da Gama will lead the team under a cloud of controversy after he was instructed to take charge of the national team after head coach Shakes Mashaba was suspended after publicly criticising SAFA CEO Danny Jordan.
