South Africa are set to face the East African side in back to back clashes with the first game scheduled for 9 October in Ethiopia before playing host to them at the FNB Stadium for the return leg on 12 October.

The Belgian coach made a few changes to his side but relatively kept the same squad that featured against Zimbabwe and Ghana in their first to World Cup qualifying matches, with Percy Tau the only player left out after picking up an injury.
