On Friday at 20:30pm CAT, South Africa will take on Islanders Cape Verde at Estadio Nacional de Cabo Verde. This is the third round of the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers. 


A win for Bafana Bafana tomorrow and then again on Tuesday (Second Leg of the qualifiers) in Durban will put South Africa in a good position to qualify for Russia 2018. Although the might be some issues with the artificial surface they will be playing on, coach Stuart Baxter says his team needs to adapt. 

“Its not the best astroturf surfaces” Baxter said. 

South Africa and Burkina Faso are currently tied on 4 points in Group D. Only group winners qualify for Russia 2018. 

Kick-off: 20:30pm CAT
