South Africa vs Ghana build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Back-to-back wins over Sao Tome (2-0 and 4-2) have put South Africa in a very strong position to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for the second time in a row. Molefi Ntseki’s side have only lost one of their four games so far, though that was a 2-0 defeat to Thursday’s opponents in the opening match way back in November 2019. If South Africa can pick up a win here, though, it would effectively book their place at the finals in Cameroon early next year.
Level on points with South Africa, the same could be said for Ghana. Charles Akonnor’s side fell to a shock 1-0 defeat to Sudan in their last qualifying match but remain the favourites to top this group, especially considering minnows Sao Tome await in their final match. Ghana have lost just one of their last nine meetings with South Africa, and haven’t lost a competitive game against them since February 2000, so will head into this match confident of getting the job done, even if they’re missing some key players.
- South Africa (vs Sao Tome and Principe): Williams; Morena, Lebusa, Hlatshwayo, Lakay; Zungu, Furman; Tau, Zwane, Dolly; Manyama.
- Ghana (vs Sudan): Dauda; Opoku, Boye, Djiku, Rahman; Acquah, Wakaso; Fosu-Henry, Ekuban, Schlupp; J. Ayew.
Kermit Erasmus and Bradley Grobler miss out for South Africa through injury, but the Bafana Bafana still have a strong squad named for this international break.
Though they will be able to play against Sao Tome on Sunday, England-based trio Jordan Ayew, Andre Ayew and Thomas Partey will be unable to face South Africa. Kasim Adams Nuhu and Stephan Ambrosius rejected call-ups, while left-back Gideon Mensah is unavailable due to injury.

Player to watch: Percy Tau (South Africa)
South Africa aren’t blessed with a plethora of star players like some of the other nations on the continent, but in Percy Tau, they do have a forward with a proven record at this level.
The Brighton man — currently on loan at Belgian giants Anderlecht — has 12 goals to his name in 28 international caps so far, including three in this current qualification campaign, though they all came in matches against Sao Tome.
That said, Tau has scored against the likes of Nigeria, Senegal and Paraguay on international duty down the years, while his four goals and one assist in Belgian top-flight football this season serves as further evidence of his ability to be a match-winner.
