Bafana Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki has on Wednesday dropped a list of his 23 players to face Mali in the 2019 Nelson Mandela challenge.

The encounter is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 13 October 2019, at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth. Kick-off is at 15:00.


“This is a very important match for us as it will determine our way forward in a sense of how we are going to play and approach matches. We could not play a match in the last training camp due to reasons known to everyone, but we had good training in anticipation of that game,” said Ntseki.

“But it will be crucial for us to start the journey of the Afcon qualifiers on a positive note. What I also want to see from the players is the mental attitude that there are no friendly matches in international football, we have to do the best we can to win every fixture because winning can become a habit and on the other hand, so can losing. Once we do well against Mali, it will stand us in good stead against Ghana and Sudan next month.”
