South Africa coach Stuart Baxter will unveil his squad for upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde on Wednesday, August 16.

The teams will meet in back-to-back Group D clashes on September 1 in Praia and September 5 in Durban.

Bafana Bafana are placed second in the group on four points after a 1-1 draw away to leaders Burkina Faso (who also have four points) in October last year, followed by a controversial 2-1 home win over Senegal in November.

The other Group D clashes see the Teranga Lions host the Stallions in Dakar on September 2, followed by the return game in Ouagadougou on September 5.

Baxter will also oversee the second leg of a final round 2018 African Nations Championship qualifier against Zambia in Ndola this coming weekend. The first leg on Saturday in East London ended in a 2-2 draw.
