Cape Town - Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba has released Mamelodi Sundowns trio ahead of their participation in the CAF Champions League final.

The Brazilians face Egyptian giants, Zamalek, on Saturday at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in the first-leg of the continental showpiece. Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.

The three players leaving the Bafana Bafana camp are Tebogo Langerman, Hlompho Kekana and Keagan Dolly.

With that in mind, Mashaba has let the players off early despite South Africa having an international friendly against Ghana on Tuesday. Kick-off is at 20:00.

Bafana Bafana were held to a 1-1 draw against a stubborn Burkina Faso in Ouagadougou.

"Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba has released Sundowns players from tomorrow's friendly match with Ghana. Downs play Zamalek on Saturday," read a tweet from the official Bafana Bafana Twitter account.
