Bafana set for two friendly matches in October


The South African Football Association (SAFA) have confirmed that Bafana Bafana will play two friendly matches in October as part of their preparations for the Afcon qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe.

Bafana will resume with the Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 qualifiers in November after football was suspended in March this year due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

Coach Molefi Ntseki says he is organising the two friendly matches between 5-13 October to get his charges ready for the back-to-back battle against the island country.

“I am trying to arrange two friendly matches in October to prepare for the two Sao Tome matches in November,” said Ntseki.

After the Sao Tome matches, Bafana Bafana will be back in action in March 2021 when they host Ghana in the penultimate qualifier, before travelling to Sudan for the final encounter of the qualification matches.

SAFA have also confirmed that a SAFA Technical Committee meeting has been scheduled for all national team coaches including those for Banyana Banyana, U/23, U/20 and U/17 with the new Technical Director to present their plans in preparations for the resumption of international matches.
