Cape Town - Bafana Bafana defender Thulani Hlatshwayo has been forced to withdraw from the squad touring South America after the death of his uncle.

The Bidvest Wits captain is headed back to South Africa and will miss Bafana's clash against Honduras at Metropolitano Stadium in San Pedro Sula on Tuesday.

"It is a big blow for the entire team. 'Tyson' is one of the most dedicated and disciplined 'soldiers' in this team," Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba said in a statement.

"But this is something beyond human control and he has our blessings to leave camp and mourn his uncle with the rest of his family. May his uncle's soul rest in peace."
