“As the ANC Youth League, we are confident that the selected players are the perfect team to restore the integrity of our national team after our below-par performance during Chan [African Nations Championship] tournament,” said spokesman Bandile Masuku.

He said the ANCYL regarded soccer as a key nation-building element.

“Bafana Bafana and all other national sport teams help us build a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous South Africa,” he said.

President Jacob Zuma is expected to attend the soccer match, which will kick off at 7pm on Wednesday at FNB stadium south of Johannesburg.
