Bafana

More Details Of Broos’ First Euro Clash

SAFA CEO Tebogo Motlanthe has confirmed further details regarding Bafana Bafana’s scheduled friendly against a top European side.

It was confirmed by the association last month that coach Hugo Broos would lead the national team against France during the FIFA break in March.

Bafana have not played a team from Europe since Norway in 2013, and it was the coach’s wish to see his employers line-up a friendly of this magnitude.

“That is definitely confirmed and Bafana will be travelling to Paris. We don’t have a date for the squad announcement just yet because the coach is only coming back this week, so we will hear from him,” Motlanthe told the Siya crew.

With his side not part of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament currently underway in Cameroon, it means Broos, who is Belgian, has been able to take a break having last been in the dugout when Bafana faced Ghana in November.

It was a World Cup qualifier that ended in tears for South Africa as the Black Stars knocked them out of the race for Qatar by finishing top of the group and setting up a play-off against Nigeria over two legs next month.

Only five African countries get to qualify for the global showpiece, but the friendly against France will be a boost for Bafana as Broos now has to prepare them for the next Afcon to be held in Ivory Coast next year – and 48 teams will be drawn into twelve groups later this year, with the preliminary rounds scheduled for next month.
