Our prediction for this match:
South Africa and Uganda go head to head in an all-African friendly in Johannesburg. Bafana Bafana missed out on a place at the Africa Cup of Nations, with the team finishing the qualifying process in third place, behind Ghana and Sudan. South Africa are eager to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Sudan, and the bookies see them as favourites to beat Uganda at Orlando Stadium.
All Khune, Hlathwayo, Zungu, Zwane, and Grobler have been left out of the squad, while head coach Hugo Broos will not be with the squad after being tested positive for coronavirus. Uganda failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations as well. The Cranes failed to win the previous five games, but given the number of notable absentees in the home team, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.

Highlighted Team (Uganda):
Uganda are an African football team that have yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals. The Cranes struggle in the World Cup qualifiers, but they did well to make it to the Africa Cup of Nations finals in 1978.
Uganda outplayed Nigeria in the semi-finals of the tournament in Ghana, but the hosts proved to be a big catch for Peter Okee’s troops in the title game. You should bear in mind that the Uganda national football team made their first appearances at the African Cup of Nations back in 1962. The Cranes wear yellow shirts and black shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is white and black.
Uganda play their home games at Mandela National Stadium, the venue that was opened in 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 45,202. The likes of Almansi Kadogo, David Obua, Ibrahim Sekagya, Joel Kitamirike and Joseph Kizito are the most notable footballers who played for Uganda.
