Cape Town - Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter
explained the national team went to Tunisia via Germany as it made the
most logistical and practical sense.
Bafana are set to face Libya on Sunday in a crucial Africa Cup of Nations Group E qualifier at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax.
South Africa require a point to advance to the AFCON tournament in Egypt, whereas, the Mediterranean Knights need a victory.
The clash is being played in a neutral venue due to the Libyan civil war.
Speaking to the media, Baxter explained why the national team took the route they did to get to North Africa.
He said: "Looking at all sorts of ways of solving the logistical
problems and we had plans, one, was stopping in different places to
refuel and two getting there and not having adequate training
"So I am happy with the solution now, which is a flight with SAA into Frankfurt, and to hop aboard a two-hour flight and camp in to Tunis
and then a 3 and a half hour bus trip.
"Hopefully we will have two sessions at the stadium. I think that's a good solution."
Kick-off is at 19:00.
