After Bafana Bafana came from behind to beat Mozambique 2-1 in an international friendly on Thursday, Soccer Laduma looks at some of the changes head coach Hugo Broos could make for Sunday's clash against Angola. 

Bafana recovered from an early set back, thanks to a brace from former Maritzburg United attacker Bongokuhle Hlongwane, who scored both his goals in the second half.

Broos started the game with a backline with three Mamelodi Sundowns defenders in Rushine de Reuck, Grant Kekana and Aubrey Modiba, but there could be some changes with Siyanda Xulu expected to feature in the line-up and possibly even captain the side. Veli Mothwa could start in goal ahead of Ronwen Williams as Broos continues to give some of the players an opportunity to prove themselves in international friendly matches. 

Thapelo Morena could slot in at right back ahead of Nyiko Mobbie, who had a good game against the Mozambicans.

In midfield, Kaizer Chiefs player Njabulo Blom is likely to get the nod in the starting line-up, having impressed for the Soweto giants in recent weeks. Kgaogelo Sekgota made a difference when he came on as a substitute against Mozambique and could be given a chance to start on Sunday.
