Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana will play a friendly international match against neighbours Zimbabwe on Tuesday, 15 November 2011.

The clash comes three days after playing Africa’s number one ranked team Ivory Coast in a highly-anticipated Nelson Mandela Challenge match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

Bafana Bafana will travel to Zimbabwe and the match will be staged at the Rufaro Stadium in Harare.

Kickoff is at 19h00.

“We are very excited at having two great opponents inside three days. This should give Bafana Bafana head coach Pitso Mosimane and the boys an ideal workout and keep them in top condition,” said Safa CEO Robin Petersen.

“The Zimbabwe encounter should be an interesting game taking into consideration that most players in the Zimbabwe National team ply their trade in the Absa Premiership,” added Petersen.

The last time the two neighbours met was early last year in a World Cup warm match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

South Africa recorded a resounding 3-0 victory with goals from Siphiwe Tshabalala, Thulasizwe Mbuyane and Lucas Thwala.
