Match preview 🏆 

Ivory Coast's attacking options alone show why they're capable of reaching the last four. Wilfried Zaha, Wilfried Bony, Jonathan Kodjia, Max Gradel, Maxwel Cornet and £80 million-rated Nicolas Pepe are all vying for possible three places in a star-studded attack. 

Stuart Baxter's South Africa side went unbeaten in qualifying but this will be a stern test of their defensive credentials. 



 Players to watch 🌟

Nicolas Pepe is one of the hottest properties in Europe at the moment and it's no wonder, after a stunning season in Ligue 1 for Lille. He'll be partnered by Crystal Palace flier Wilfried Zaha in a potent, pacy looking attack.

Bafana Bafana's defensive duo of clubmates Thulani Hlatshwayo and Buhle Mkhwanazi will need to rely on their collective experience and defensive chemistry to keep the Ivory Coast attack at bay. Also, watch out for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Percy Tau, who will offer mobility, creativity and a killer final ball with his left foot.
