Delayed Bafana coming home tomorrow

2015-01-29 13:41

Bafana Bafana will only arrive back in South Africa tomorrow, due to the Confederation of African Football’s failure to arrange a flight for the team.

“The delay in Bafana Bafana arriving as scheduled this morning was as a result of the Equatorial Guinea local organising committee failing to organise a chartered flight out of Mongomo in time,” the South African Football Association’s head of communications, Dominic Chimhavi, said.

“All travelling matters regarding teams leaving the host country are organised and arranged by the organising committee.

“Bafana Bafana are now scheduled to arrive home tomorrow.”

The team were due to arrive in Johannesburg early this morning but will now have to wait in Mongomo for a flight to be arranged.

South Africa bowed out of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday with a single point from three group C matches, losing to Algeria and Ghana and playing to a 1-1 draw against Senegal.
