Brilliant Khuzwayo would be in goals for the clash taking place at the Estadio de Mongomo at 8pm.

He replaces Jackson Mabokgwane, who played in the 1-1 draw against Senegal last week. In the opening 3-1 loss against Algeria, it was Darren Keet who kept the goals for the South Africans.

Coach Shakes Mashaba has in total made four changes to the starting 11 for the crucial Black Stars game.

Central defender Rivaldo Coetzee returns after picking-up a knee injury in their opening match and missing the Senegal match.

He repalces Thulani Hlatshwayo, who was injured in the last match.

Midfielder Mandla Masango takes the place of Oupa Manyisa while striker Bongani Ndulula comes in for Sibusiso Vilakazi.
