Bafana to play Mozambique

2012-08-13 11:22

Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana will host Mozambique in Gordon Igesund's second match in charge, officials have revealed, although Safa must still confirm the fixture, according to a report on the Sowetan website.

It will be played in Nelspruit on Tuesday, September 11, with its position close to the border expected to deliver a bumper crowd.

South Africa first have a prestige friendly against five-time world champions Brazil, marking the start of Igesund's regime.

The game is set for Sao Paulo on September 7 and is being marketed as a symbolic hand-over from the previous to next hosts of the Soccer World Cup.

The national team will then have to fly back across six time zones for their meeting with the Mambas - only the third against the country's eastern neighbour.

    SAFA is a joke, teams that want to achieve big things play friendlies with great nations but SAFA chooses teams like Mozambique to measure their standards
