South Africa, Zambia clash in friendly

19 December 2014, 13:40

Cape Town - Bafana Bafana will face Zambia in an international friendly on 4 January at Orlando Stadium before heading off to the 2015 Afcon.

This match will be used as a farewell for the national team before leaving for Central African nation of Gabon en route to the 2015 CAF Orange Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. The match will kick-off at 15h00.

This will be the first match Mashaba will play in Johannesburg since taking over the reigns of Bafana Bafana. The clash will also give the fans a chance to see South Africa’s final 23-man squad as it would have been announced four days earlier (30 December 2014).

“This is an opportunity for all South Africans to come in numbers and say thank you to (Shakes) Mashaba and his boys for qualifying for Afcon 2015. The boys are set to make us proud in Equatorial Guinea.

“Over and above that, it’s a perfect opportunity for the coach to present to the nation the final squad that will fly South Africa’s flag high at the Afcon tournament,” said Dr Danny Jordaan, president of the SA Football Association (Safa).

“This is a chance not to be missed, and we urge the fans to come in numbers to show their support to Bafana Bafana as they leave these shores to represent us at the biggest continental soccer showpiece. That is why we have even dropped our ticket prizes to make this a day to remember for all.”

Tickets for the match are already on sale and going for R50 (Fifty Rand) all round and can be purchased at Computicket outlets, Shoprite, Checkers and Shoprite/Checkers stores countrywide.
