Bafana Bafana could make use of Cape Town Spurs hitman Ashley Cupido for today’s 3pm must-win Cosafa Cup clash against eSwatini at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

South Africa enter the match with all the teams in Group A on two points and only the top team assured of a place in the semi-finals.

The top three teams from the three groups advance, as well as the best runner-up.

To make sure they book their place in the last four, South Africa need goals – which have been in short supply in their two other 
matches to date.

And Cupido could be the man to add a more lethal edge.

After playing to a 1-1 draw with Mozambique and a 0-0 stalemate with Botswana, coach Helman Mkhalele says ahead of Tuesday’s final group match: “One of the things that I will look into [is to see how I an use Ashley Cupido].

“What let us down against Botswana was that there was no support for Thabang Sibanyoni when he competed in the air and [bringing in Cupido] would be an option.”
