Possible Bafana-Bafana's starting lineup To Face France Tonight || Find out who are in Here

Possible Bafana-Bafana's starting lineup To Face France Tonight || Find out who are in Here Predicting Bafana Bafana's starting lineup against France

In Tuesday's international friendly encounter at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, the 1996 African Cup of Nations winners will face their toughest test until 2022 when they face the defending global champions Bafana Bafana will be hoping for a confidence-boosting success over France.

The game comes four days after coach Hugo Broos' men drew 0-0 against Guinea in another friendly match. Broos stated that he would make significant changes to the team that started against Guinea, naming Nyiko Mobbie and Fagrie Lakay as examples.

GOAL forecasts how Belgium's starting lineup will look against France.


GOALKEEPER - Ronwen Williams

Broos gave Veli Monthwa a chance and left the Bafana skipper on the bench against Guinea.

Williams is now anticipated to return so that the coach may field his best team.

RIGHT-BACK - Nyiko Mobbie - Backpagepix

Broos has made Mobbie one of his favored players, and the coach has stated that he will start the Sekhukhune United defense.

Khuliso Mudau, the Mamelodi Sundowns star who shined against Guinea, would be on the bench.

Backpagepix LEFT-BACK - Lyle Lakay Lakay only played five minutes after being brought on as a late substitute to replace Terrence Mashego, who had started the game against Guinea.

However, because this is Lakay's first time with the national team under the current technical team, he could be in the lineup to be fully analyzed.

CENTRE-BACK - Rushine de Reuck - Backpagepix

The center defender for Mamelodi Sundowns played the second 45 minutes against Syli National.

De Reuck, who has always been a starter under Broos, is expected to be in the starting lineup.


Siyanda (CENTRE-BACK) Xulu Xulu is the most experienced player in this Bafana Bafana side, and his presence in defence will be crucial, especially now that Kylian Mbappe has been confirmed fit.

Under the current Bafana coach, Xulu has joined De Reuck at the heart of the defense more than any other player.


In the previous encounter, Mokoena came on as a second-half substitute for Thabang Monare.

However, after starting every game in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers, he might return to the starting lineup to face Manchester United's Paul Pogba in a midfield clash.

CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Thabang Monare Broos has always favored to play with two central midfielders, one of whom plays a more defensive role while the other plays an offensive role.

The Belgian is a big fan of Monare, who, despite all the negative press surrounding him before the game, delivered a strong performance against Guinea.



Despite playing 90 minutes in the previous match, the Kaizer Chiefs midfielder could return to the starting lineup.

Dolly has the necessary experience against the Bleus, having spent the majority of his career in France.



Broos has found a new place for Shandu in midfield due to intense competition at right-back.

Because the Orlando Pirates player is offensive and has been one of the Buccaneers' top scorers this season, the Bafana coach can play him a little higher up the field.



According to the coach, another player is expected to start.

The Pyramids FC attacker was unable to play against Guinea because he was awaiting the approval of his visa to travel to France.

CENTRE-FORWARD - Backpagepix Bongokuhle Hlongwane Hlongwane is yet another player that arrived late to camp due to visa issues.

The US-based player is nearly certain to start, and he'll be ready to take on Manchester United defender Raphael Varane if he's called up.
