JOHANNESBURG – Bafana Bafana begin the long road of qualifying for the Caf 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon with crucial matches against Ghana and Sudan on November 11 and 19.
In preparation for those fixtures, South Africa will play Mali in an international friendly match in the Nelson Mandela Challenge scheduled for next weekend (Sunday, October 13) in Port Elizabeth.
This will be new coach Molefi Ntseki’s first official match at the helm of the national team.
"Our training camp starts this weekend and I just can’t wait to get on with the job because last time out we could not arrange a match but I am positive things will work out this time around,” said Ntseki.
“This being my first match as the head coach this is a special time and a great honour to start my Bafana Bafana career with a competition associated with one of the greatest statesmen to have ever lived.”
