Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Lebogang Manyama has been called up to the Bafana Bafana squad for their two crucial 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) clashes against Ghana and Sudan.

Manyama replaces the injured Themba Zwane from Mamelodi Sundowns.

Bafana Bafana assembled for camp on Sunday and will fly out to Accra on Monday evening.

The overseas-based contingent of Lebohang Phiri, Bongani Zungu, Lebo Mothiba (all France), Thulani Serero (Abu Dhabi), Percy Tau, Darren Keet (both Belgium) as well as Kamohelo Mokotjo (England) will join up with their team-mates in Accra, the capital of Ghana, before the long bus drive to Cape Coast.

This is where Bafana Bafana will take on Ghana in the first match of the qualifiers on Thursday, November 14 at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:00.

The squad will then drive back to Accra after the match, have a short sleep, then board an early morning flight back to Johannesburg.

They are expected to land at OR Tambo International Airport around 17:25.

For the second match of the qualifiers, Bafana Bafana will face Sudan at Orlando Stadium on Sunday, November 17 at 15:00, but prior to that, they will have only one training session at the match venue on Saturday afternoon.

This will be Bafana Bafana’s 12th meeting against the Black Stars of Ghana and their third clash against Sudan.

Tickets for the fixture against Sudan are already on sale and can be purchased at Computicket outlets, Shoprite and Checkers stores for R40.
