A new era for the South African men's senior national team gets underway with an international friendly against Uganda at Orlando Stadium on Thursday.

In our "new normal" societal environment, which requires adaptation to the ongoing effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Bafana Bafana too will have to adapt. 

Newly appointed head coach Hugo Broos will miss the first competitive fixture since being unveiled as he is scheduled to receive a second Covid-19 vaccination jab.
