Cape Town - The Bafana Bafana mini training camp scheduled for December 27-30, 2013 has been called off.
Coach Gordon Igesund has decided to give the players some rest ahead of
the 2014 Caf African Nations Championship (Chan) that is scheduled to
start on Saturday, January 11 in Cape Town.
“I feel this has been a hectic season for everyone, especially the
players so it's only fair that we call off the mini training camp and
give them some rest. I would like them to go spend some time with their
families and come back refreshed ahead of a very long camp,” said
“I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry
Christmas and a prosperous new year. Let us go into 2014 with more
vigour and energy so we can face the challenges that may come up.”
Bafana Bafana will start their training camp on Thursday, January 2 in Cape Town.
They play their first match of the tournament against Mozambique on
Saturday,January 11 at 18:00, followed by a clash against
Mali (January 15, 17:00) and they round off the group stage when they lock
horns with Nigeria (January, 19, 19:00).
