News coming out of Swaziland is that Bafana Bafana coach, Gordon Igesund, is worried that his players might struggle to play on the artificial turf at Swaziland's Somhlolo National Stadium when the two sides meet for a friendly international tomorrow night.

Speaking to The Times of Swaziland ahead of tomorrow night’s game, Igesund said the last time his players played on artificial turf, they struggled to cope.

“I can recall that the last time we played on the artificial turf was in Lesotho and the players struggled,” said Igesund.

“Playing on natural grass and the artificial one is just two different things. In Lesotho, our players struggled to control the ball.

“It is a fact that we are not used to it but we do hope that the training session we will have at the stadium before the game on Friday will greatly help the players in having a feel of the surface,” added Igesund.

Bafana will play Sihlangu Semnikati at the Somhlolo National Stadium tomorrow night at 20h30.

The match will be broadcast live on SABC.
