Gomes will referee the encounter while Siwela will be his assistant in the game which is set to be played at Stade Alphonse Massamba Debat on September 9.

Meanwhile, Ndzandzeka is the fourth official in the Group D clash between the Congolese and the Zimbabweans.

Bafana Bafana are set to return to competitive action as they face Libya on September 8 at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

Stuart Baxter's squad will reportedly meet for the clash on September 2 and will head to Durban on the following day.

Bafana started their AFCON positively with a famous 2-0 victory over Nigeria in Uyo last year. A win over the Libyans could come as a huge boost for Baxter's men.
