Bafana friendly to stay in Lesotho

2013-05-23 12:32

The South African Football Association (Safa) has confirmed Bafana Bafana’s international friendly against Lesotho will not be moved to Bloemfontein.

The game will now be played on June 2, a day later than initially scheduled, but will stay in Maseru.

Officials were negotiating to have the match moved from the Lesotho capital to Bloemfontein to make logistics easier for Bafana Bafana, who travel to Cameroon afterwards.

Safa spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi confirmed to the game was delayed by a day but it won’t be moved.

It will also take place during the day, and not under floodlights as initially planned.

The friendly serves as a warm up for both countries ahead of Soccer World Cup qualifiers in June.

Bafana Bafana have two away matches in Group B against the Central African Republic on June 8 in Yaounde, Cameroon and Ethiopia on June 16 in Addis Ababa.

Lesotho play Zambia on June 8 and then host Ghana in Maseru a week later.
