South Africa: Sangweni and Manyisa Withdrawn From Bafana Bafana Squad

The Orlando Pirates duo of Oupa Manyisa and Siyabonga Sangweni have been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad to face Zambia in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Wednesday ( 14 November 2012) at Soccer City.

Kickoff is at 20h00.

Defender Sangweni missed his club's League clash against Free State Stars on Saturday, 10 November after he was withdrawn from the starting line-up following complaints of a knee pain during the warm-up session, while midfielder Manyisa was substituted in the same match after sustaining a thigh injury in the second half.

Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund has called up Kaizer Chiefs defender Siboniso Gaxa, and Manyisa will not be replaced as the coach believes he has enough cover in the midfield.

Bafana Bafana will have a gym training session on Monday morning (12 November) starting at 10h30.
