Johannesburg - The SA Football Association (SAFA) is seeking to match Bafana Bafana against world champions Spain in commemoration of former president Nelson Mandela's birthday.
SAFA president Kirsten Nematandani on Thursday revealed an invitation to this effect had been sent to the Spanish Football Federation.
"We have yet to receive a reply," said Nematandani.
"So there is nothing definite to the proposal at this stage. But we are holding thumbs."
Nematandani said it would be difficult to secure the fixture for Bafana against the number-one ranked team in the world.
"We also have to take into account that they will be playing in the Confederation Cup rehearsal for the 2014 Soccer World Cup in Brazil during June and this could be another complication," said Nematandani.
"We shall just have to wait and see."
Nematandani said a July 18 date (Mandela's birthday) would not be possible, and sometime in August would be targeted.
