Cape Town - Bafana Bafana head coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba has made four changes to the team that played to a 1-1 draw against Mauritania for the 2016 Nelson Mandela Challenge clash against Egypt.
South Africa and The Pharaohs meet on Tuesday night in the 22nd edition of the annual event.
The clash will take place at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.
Kick-off is at 19:05.
Mashaba will continue with Itumeleng Khune in goals, while Clayton Daniels will take the place of Ramahlwe Mphahlele at central defence alongside captain Thulani Hlatshwayo.
Tebogo Langerman and Abbubaker Mobara retain their positions at left-back and right-back respectively.
Dean Furman returns to the starting line-up after starting from the bench against Mauritania as he replaces Hlompho Kekana. Mandla Masango has also been preferred over Maphosa Modiba with Andile Jali and Mpho Makola as the other midfielders.
Keagan Dolly has recovered from his hamstring injury and replaces Sibusiso Vilakazi while Thamsanqa Gabuza completes the starting eleven.
Dolly missed the Mauritania clash as he was still nursing a hamstring injury.
Denwin Farmer and Thabiso Kutumela are not in the match day squad, with the rest of the players starting on the bench.
