Bafana Bafana is taking on Guatemala national team on a friendly game tonight just under two weeks before the soccer spectacular on the African soil.
The South African national team coach Carlos Alberto Parreira is going to this game with two of his most important players injured.
Media reports earlier reported that goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune and defender Tsepo Masilela have been rested from training for days pending another assessment today by the medical team.
The duo sustained the injuries in Bafana’s 2-1 win over Colombia at the Soccer City Stadium on Thursday.
Both players collided with opponents in the first half of the match.
Khune got a mild knock to the backside area, while Masilela received one on the right thigh.
Mweanwhile, when Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena leads his team onto the field against Guatamala tonight, he will be entering into the record books.
Mokoena will be making his 100th appearance for the national team and will become the first South African to do so.
