Bafana Bafana captain Steven Pienaar will miss Saturday's crucial African Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Sierra Leon at Mbombela Stadium.
Bafana must beat Sierra Leone to keep their hopes of qualifying for the 2012 continental championships alive.
Last week, coach Pitso Mosimane included Pienaar in his squad, in hope that the injury-prone skipper would make the team this week.
Pienaar has been recovering from a groin injury he picked up on a pre-season tour with his English club Tottenham Hotspur.
Mosimane said the skipper will be sidelined in order to give him more time to recover fully for future games.
"He can be available but he's just on the edge. We've decided it's best if he misses this game because the game on Saturday will be a very demanding game," he said.
