• Starting XI: Bafana Bafana vs Nigeria

    Bafana Bafana

    Bafana Bafana battle against Nigeria in their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final clash at the Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday evening and coach Stuart Baxter has named a strong lineup for the encounter.

    The last-eight clash between the two nations is scheduled to get under way at 9pm SA time.

    South Africa made their way to the knockouts after finishing the group stages as the fourth-best third-placed team before shocking hosts Egypt with a 1-0 victory on Saturday to book a spot in the quarters against the Super Eagles.

    The Nigerians topped their group after two wins from three in the group stages and then came from behind to knock out defending champions Cameroon in the last 16.

    Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has named the same starting eleven as the team that performed so well against the hosts.

    Take a look at Bafana Bafana starting lineup against Nigeria:

    Starting XI: Ronwen Williams (g), Thamsanqa Mkhize, Sfiso Hlanti, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thulani Hlatshwayo (c), Dean Furman, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Bongani Zungu, Thembinkosi Lorch, Percy Tau, Lebo Mothiba.

    Subs: Darren Keet, Bruce Bvuma, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Daniel Cardoso, Innocent Maela, Hlompho Kekana, Tiyani Mabunda, Sbusiso Vilakazi, Thulani Serero, Lars Veldwijk, Lebogang Maboe, Themba Zwane.
