Cape Town - Bafana Bafana's friendly against Zambia could be called off this weekend due to xenophobic attacks.
According to SABC Sport's journalist Thabiso Mosia, the encounter could be hanging in the balance due to the xenophobic attacks that have affected Gauteng.
News24 reported that protesters and looters have targeted foreigners in different parts of Gauteng over the past few days.
According to Mosia, the attacks have put pressure on Zambia Football Association ahead of Saturday's match at the Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00 on Saturday.
Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki and his squad are currently in Johannesburg and are expected to depart for Zambia on Thursday.
This will be Ntseki's first official game in charge since he was appointed permanently this past weekend.
According to Mosia, SAFA are currently trying to find a replacement opponent for this weekend if the match does not take place.
This match against Zambia will be part of the preparations for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers which commences in November.
