As indicated and reported by the Siya crew earlier, the friendly international between South American giants, Argentina and Bafana Bafana will no longer take place.
The crew had reported in December 2014 and earlier this year, just ahead of Bafana’s departure to the African Cup of Nations finals in Equatorial Guinea that the South African Football Association had been planning to schedule a friendly against La Albiceleste, who are currently ranked number two in the world by FIFA.
The friendly was scheduled to be played some time in March 2015, however the crew can now confirm that Bafana will no longer be facing Argentina.
“That match is no longer happening,” confirmed SAFA’s Communications Officer, Dominic Chimhavi with the crew.
Since their early exit from the AFCON, Bafana have slipped further down from the top 50 and are now ranked 56th in the world. They now also occupy 14th spot in Africa according to the latest FIFA rankings.
