Bafana will face Paraguay on November 20th as the celebrations continue in Madiba's centenary year, with South Africa facing non-African opposition for the first time in more than three years - the last was Honduras in October 2015.

Before the clash at Moses Mabhida Stadium though, there is the small matter of a crucial African Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria to take place this weekend, with Stuart Baxter eager to try and ensure Bafana's qualification for next year's AFCON in Cameroon.

The encounter will see Paraguay and Bafana meet for the first time since before the 2010 World Cup when they played out a 1-1 draw, and the entire nation will be hoping to see a victory in the NMC in the year that Mandela would have turned 100 years old.
