Bafana To Play Spain

Bafana Bafana will face reigning world champions Spain in a friendly match on November 19.

The potentially mouth-watering clash will be played at FNB Stadium and will be welcomed by Gordon Igesund and his charges, as they look to prepare for the 2014 Chan, 2015 Afcon and 2018 World Cup.

The match was confirmed by South African soccer governing body Safa, who tweeted, “Confirmed - Bafana Bafana will play world champions Spain at FNB Stadium next month. Blockbuster of a game.”

The most memorable match between the two sides took place during the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup third-place playoff, which Spain won 3-2.

“It is the new SAFA executive’s mission to make Bafana Bafana world-beaters again and we have lined up top-class sides to play our senior national team. We could not have asked for a better start of this campaign than with the game against the reigning FIFA World Cup champions,” said SAFA president Dr Danny Jordaan in a statement released by the governing body.

“It is a dream come true for many soccer fans to once again see the likes of Iniesta and Xavi in action at the venue where they made history by lifting their first World Cup trophy. This is going to be a block-buster of a game,” added Dr Jordaan.
