Cape Town - Following the country’s failure to advance to the final round of the World Cup qualifiers, Bafana Bafana will have to settle for friendly games during the upcoming FIFA international breaks (on October 11-15 and November 15-19).

Dominic Chimhavi, SAFA’s head of communications, said the names of Bafana's opponents will be made in the near future.

“We will definitely be playing in those FIFA weeks but we have yet to decide on the opponents,” he told the Kick-Off website.

Bafana lost their ticket to the 2014 global showpiece when they finished as Group A runners up, trailing winners, Ethiopia, by two points.

Bafana’s game in November will be the 19th edition of the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge which dates back to 1994.
