Bafana Bafana battle against Nigeria in their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final clash at the Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday evening and coach Stuart Baxter has named a strong line up for the encounter.
The last eight clash the two nations is scheduled to get underway at 9pm South African time.
South Africa made their way into the knockout stages after finishing the group stages as the fourth-best third-places team before shocking hosts Egypt with a 1-0 victory on Saturday to book a spot in the quarters against the Super Eagles.
The Nigerians topped their group after two wins from three in the group stages and then came from behind to knock out defending champions Cameroon in the last-16.
Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has named the same starting eleven as the one who performed so well against the hosts.
Take a look at Bafana Bafana starting line up against Nigeria:
Starting XI: Ronwen Williams(G), Thamsanqa Mkhize, Sfiso Hlanti, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thulani Hlatshwayo (C), Dean Furman, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Bongani Zungu, Thembinkosi Lorch, Percy Tau, Lebo Mothiba
