The Peter Mokaba Sport Complex will set the scene for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying game between Bafana Bafana and Senegal

Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker feels that with Itumeleng Khune in goal, South Africa have the beating of Senegal in the 2018 Soccer World Cup qualifier.

Senegal's last appearance in the World Cup was in 2002 in South Korea and Japan, where they make it to the quarterfinals but failed to advance further after sustaining a 1-0 defeat to Turkey. In seven previous meetings barring the now abolished impressive 2-1 victory back in November of 2016, both sides have shared the spoils on three separate occasions, and come Friday night at the Peter Mokaba Stadium, a draw will see Bafana's Russian hopes go up in flames.

Burkina Faso now occupy second place on six points, while Cape Verde, also on six points, are third.

The series which is going to be played in the United States of America , will be a triangular series, as the third team is not decided yet.

Senegal will host South Africa on Tuesday, November 14 in an inconsequential game in their last African qualifying Group D game.

Ephraim Mashaba looked to change the game from the substitutes' bench, including bringing on Siphiwe Tshabalala, who famously scored the first goal at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

Senegal are the third African qualifiers for the World Cup in Russian Federation after Nigeria and Egypt, who secured places during the penultimate qualifying round last month.

Noland completed 17-of-28 passes for 268 yards and one interception after taking over for senior quarterback Kyle Kempt. The Cowboys finish the road part of their schedule with a 6-0 mark and have won 16 of their past 18 true road contests.

This only means that come Friday's encounter and the return leg in Dakar, Bafana will need to put aside all their off-the-field problems aside and be at their absolute best if they are to stand any chance of progression. I think he's a hell of a goalkeeper and the best user of the ball. After a counter-attack, Mane has his shot saved by Khune, only for the ball to rebound off the head of a falling Thamsanqa Mkhize and into the net for the cruellest of own goals.

The Senegalese Teranga Lions doubled their lead after 38 minutes against the run of play with another goal involving Sakho and Mane.

As half-time approached, Manyama went close again to scoring, this time from a free-kick that Ndiaye tipped over.
