Bafana prepare for Afcon with friendlies


Sports Reporter

Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki has announced that he is planning to have two friendly matches against Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) opponents before taking on Sao Tome in back-to-back 2021 Afcon qualifiers.

Ntseki has been busy trying to tie down two friendly matches, one set for 7 October, and another for 11 October this year, against two Cosafa opponents.

“We have already identified the two opponents, but will announce their names once every detail has been finalised,” Ntseki said.

After the October FIFA window period, Bafana will take on Sao Tome on 13 November at FNB Stadium before travelling to the islanders for the return game on 16 November this year.

Bafana Bafana will round off their Afcon qualifiers in March next year, playing a home match against Ghana before rounding off the campaign with an away game in Sudan.

Meanwhile, the ABC Motsepe League matches are expected to resume on 1 October and end on 31 October this year.

The national play off matches will be played in Gauteng from 9 to 15 November this year, in which the two finalists will be promoted into the National First Division.
