The Orlando Pirates duo of Oupa Manyisa and Siyabonga Sangweni have been withdrawn from Bafana Bafana due to injury.

The Orlando Pirates duo of Oupa Manyisa and Siyabonga Sangweni have been withdrawn from the national soccer squad to face Zambia in the Nelson Mandela Challenge at Soccer City on Wednesday. 

Sangweni missed his club's league clash against Free State Stars on Saturday, due to knee pain, while Manyisa was substituted in the same match after sustaining a thigh injury. 

Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund has called up Kaizer Chiefs defender Siboniso Gaxa to replace Sangweni. 

Manyisa won’t be replaced, however, as Igesund believes he has enough cover in the midfield.
