South Africa Team News

South Africa are unlikely to make major changes for Tuesday’s match after a good performance in the reverse game.

Mothobi Mvala and Teboho Mokoena will continue to play in the engine room, while Evidence Makgopa, who scored his third goal off the bench last time out, will be hoping to secure a starting spot.

Rushine De Reuck, a defender for Mamelodi Sundowns, will continue to command the back line after swiftly establishing himself in the national squad.

Ethiopia may also be reluctant of making too many changes, given that they have survived previous difficult encounters without being thrashed.

They will be without midfielder Shimeket Gugesa, who has left the camp after being ruled out of both matches against South Africa due to injury.

Getaneh Kebede, who scored in the previous match on Saturday, will continue to lead the line.
