FIFA rankings: Uruguay 17th & Argentina 3rd

Cape Verde v South Africa (World Cup Qualifier)
FIFA rankings: Cape Verde 114th & South Africa 66th
Useful facts: Cape Verde have lost both of their opening games in the group, while South Africa drew and won their first two, respectively. The last time these two met, in the opening game of the 2013 AFCON, it ended in a goalless draw. However, in the 2006 World Cup qualifiers, Bafana Bafana won both games, ironically under the tutelage of current coach, Stuart Baxter.
