Bafana Bafana get the ball rolling in the 2023 Cosafa Cup with their Group A opener against Namibia at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday.

While Bafana have what could be a third-string squad, their opponents Namibia usually take this competition seriously, although they often come short.

South Africa are pushing for a sixth Cosafa Cup title, to go level with Zimbabwe and Zambia as countries with the most crowns. Chipolopolo are the defending champions.

Namibia have won this tournament just once and that was in 2015 when it was held in the North West Province.
