According to KickOff, FIFA's website confirmed that the national side were due to square off against Argentina, with the likes of superstars Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria all in the running to take on the Mashaba's men in an international friendly.
The match against the World Cup runners-up has now fallen through, according to the Bafana Bafana coach.
“We would have loved to play Argentina but the Socceroos are not going to be the push overs,” Mashaba said.
Bafana Bafana are now expected to line-up against Australia on Saturday, March 28 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
This will be South Africa’s first competitive match since being dumped out of AFCON 2015 in the group stages.
