Confirmations coming out of Egypt reveal that Bafana Bafana star Themba Zwane won’t be playing against Egypt in the last 16 game.

As reported on Futaa this morning, Bafana have sneaked into the last 16 and will square up against hosts Egypt this weekend.

The bad news for Mamelodi Sundowns’ Zwane is that he will miss the game after picking up yellow cards against Namibia and against Morocco in the final group D game. Coach Stuart Baxter will therefore look to the likes of Sibusiso Vilakazi, Thulani Serero, Lebohang Maboe and Thembinkosi Lorch.

Bafana face Egypt on Saturday evening at 9 pm at the Cairo International stadium. A win for the South Africans will set up a meeting with the winner between Nigeria vs Cameroon.
