Johannesburg - Kick-off time for the international friendly soccer match between South Africa and Algeria has now been moved from 15:30 to 20:30.

The match will be played on Saturday, January 12 at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

The time of the clash has been moved due to the prevailing heat wave in the country, a factor which both teams said will not suit players, just a week before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) South Africa.

Bafana Bafana face the Cape Verde Islands in the African Cup of Nations opener at the National Stadium on January 19.
