“The guys are fired up for the game,” Igesund tells Safa’s official website. “They all want to play and that’s always difficult for the coach because you can’t play everybody. But I have to find the right balance, mix the youngsters with the experienced players.

“Most of the youngsters are looking very sharp and they could give us something tomorrow. I have my starting 11 but there is one or two I need to confirm.

“I want to see the team stabilised in the first half, and you can expect to see players like Sibusiso Vilakazi, Daylon Claasen, and I am even thinking of giving Siyanda Xulu (left) a chance at the back – so you could see about four youngsters in there.

"We have to give them a chance and see them progress because these are the future stars.”

45,480 tickets at the new Agadir Stadium have been sold out ahead of the clash, and Igesund says the local fans are excited for the match.

“We cannot understand what they say in the newspapers, but the people we speak to tell us this is a big game for them hence they have brought their best players.

"I believe with this match there is so much to take out of because Morocco are giants of African football,” Igesund says.
