South Africa and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana has been ruled out of Saturday's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Uyo due to injury, Bafana Bafana's verified twitter handle announced on Monday.


"Tiyani Mabunda has replaced injured Hlompho Kekana in Bafana Bafana squad," the South Africa national team stated.
