Safa has confirmed that Bafana Bafana will take on Zambia in a friendly fixture during the upcoming Fifa break.
The match will be the sides’ first outing since returning from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Nigeria.
Since the tournament the national side have seen their coach, Stuart Baxter, resign and his former assistant coach, Molefi Ntseki, handed the job on a caretaker basis. Meanwhile, the association’s technical committee continue its search for a permanent replacement.
Chipolopolo, who were crowned continental champions in 2012 but missed out in 2019, will travel to South Africa. The fixture is set to take place at the Nkoloma Stadium on 7 September, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm.
