*Confirmed Cape Verde vs South Africa lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to watch: Ryan Mendes

Ryan Mendes' goal was enough for Cape Verde to book a place in the quarter-final at the expense of Mauritania.

The Fatih Karagumruk player has impressed at this tournament, as he was directly involved in at least one goal in his country's last three games.

South Africa will have to be wary of Mendes ahead of this clash.
