Bafana Bafana are back in action on Thursday when they take on Namibia in a friendly in Rustenburg.

The national squad will use both this match and another friendly against Zambia on Sunday as vital preparation for two upcoming African Cup of Nations 2021 qualifiers against Sao Tome in November. 

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has confirmed that they will cover the match but it won't be shown on television.

Instead, it will be streamed online through sabcsportsonline.co.za.

SABC tweeted the news on Wednesday evening saying "International football is back. A neighborly encounter in the southern parts of Africa. It won’t be so friendly when Bafana Bafana meet up again Namibia, this Thursday at 18:00. Watch the match live on sabcsportonline.co.za."

Bafana will be the first national sporting team to see action following the coronavirus lockdown in March.
