Johannesburg - South Africa’s friendly international against Lesotho has been switched
back 24 hours from Saturday June 1 to Sunday June 2 and could be moved
away from Maseru.
According to the supersport.com website, the South African Football Association is expected to make an official
statement later on Wednesday about a possible venue change but the new
date has been confirmed.
Officials are now negotiating to have the match moved from the Basotho
capital to Bloemfontein to make logistics easier for Bafana Bafana, who
travel afterwards to Cameroon.
Already there have been changes to the fixture, which was originally
scheduled to be a night match in Maseru but then switched to an
afternoon kick off at the request of broadcasters.
The friendly serves as a warm up for both countries ahead of World Cup assignments in June.
Lesotho play Zambia on June 8 and then host Ghana in Maseru one week
later. Bafana Bafana have two away matches in Group B against the
Central African Republic on June 8 in Yaounde, Cameroon and Ethiopia on
June 16 in Addis Ababa.
