SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has been named as Bafana Bafana captain for Thursday’s international friendly match against Uganda at Orlando Stadium.
Williams will be deputised by Orlando Pirates left-back Innocent Maela for the match which Helman Mkhalele will take charge of, as South Africa’s newly appointed head coach Hugo Broos is in Belgium receiving a second coronavirus jab, while first assistant coach Cedomir Janevski is unavailable after testing positive for Covid-19.
It is not yet clear if Pirates defender Thulani Hlatshwayo has been permanently stripped of the armband after he was omitted for the Uganda match.
But with Williams being one of the longest-serving Bafana players and having shown some leadership qualities as SuperSport skipper, chances are that he could remain as Bafana captain beyond the Uganda clash.
The home team come into this on the back of no match since March in their AFCON qualification. Those March matches involved a 2-0 loss to Sudan and a 1-1 draw against Ghana. Their current squad revolved around Brighton’s Percy Tau and Rangers’ Bongani Zungu.
They come up against a Uganda side that are winless in their last six matches and they have failed to score in four of those six games as they have fallen to 84th in the world. The South Africans will come into this as the slight favourites.
