Johannesburg - The proposed friendly soccer match between Bafana Bafana and India which was scheduled to take place at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on January 7 has been postponed.

A date is yet to be agreed upon by the two countries.

The postponement is at the request of India, as they had to be back in New Delhi on January 8 for another engagement. Both teams have apologised to soccer fans who were looking forward to the inaugural match between the two countries.

    What only to see Bafana lose again?

    thankfully Bafana does not ever play in Cape Town

    They wanted to play India, who are ranked about 200 in the world?? Is this the "plan" to make Bafana competitive again? What a joke! Where's the friendlies against Spain, Netherlands, England, Brazil and Uruguay? Come on SAFA!

      On the 17th November 2010 against USA at the Cape Town Stadium. So a wee bit more than a year ago.

      Typical news24 garbage comments. 13 months ago I was watching Bafana vs USA in Cape Town. Host cities are decided based on domestic game attendances, amongst other things. The preferred venue is Joburg, SAFA's chosen 'home'. That leaves half of the games up for rotation for the rest of SA. Ct has developed a reputation for poor attendance in the past decade or two. This was the case long before the DA had any municipality. Beside all the facts, use logic and think where India is most likely to get support in the country.

    Next will be playing Afghanistan and Malta. I notice the little experiment with African teams has not really worked in SA's favour so the solution is to go out. Yeah that is a brilliant arrangement - can't play those at par or the big guns, so avoid them unless in competitions and instead play the minnows and hopefully win big to prove to the fans that you are sizzling hot. You got to hand it to SAFA - they actually think contrary to perceptions.

    Argh man u guys are such moaners, u forgt that teams like spain, netherlands, germany etc also play these substandard teams and give them abt 3-4 goals. Notice it is never 6 goals or anything. I knw draws rnt ideal but we cnt expect overnyt success
