Cape Town - Bafana Bafana have confirmed that defenders Anele Ngcongca and Clayton Daniels will undergo scans to determine the extent of the injuries they sustained on Tuesday.

The pair picked up knocks during the 2-1 friendly win over Angola at the Cape Town Stadium, where Thamsanqa Gabuza's strike in first-half stoppage time and an own goal from Felipe Malanda handed South Africa the victory.

However, the result appears to have come at a cost after Ngcongca and Daniels both pulled up, although they are believed to have escaped any long-term injuries.

A statement from the South African Football Association read: "South Africa suffered two injuries in the match with defenders Clayton Daniels and Anele Ngcongca taken off with knocks.

"They will be assessed by the medical team to check the extent of their injuries - according to the team doctor they didn't look serious."
