Bafana's Opponents For March Friendly

The South African Football Association will be holding a press conference later today to announce Bafana Bafana’s opponents for the international friendly scheduled for March 28, with sources close to the federation having indicated that they will be facing Nigeria.

SAFA On the verge of revealing Bafana's opponents 

Previously Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba had 'sold' some members of the media a dummy by hinting at Australia as the possible nation to play against Bafana, following the decision by the South African football mother body to call off the possible friendly against Argentina.  

Reports later emerged linking the Super Eagles to the friendly, following their failure to qualify for the 2015 edition of the tournament owing to their draws against South Africa in the qualification stages.

High ranking sources have now informed the Siya crew that the Nigerian Football Federation vice-president is in South Africa to negotiate the terms of the friendly with SAFA's top brass. 

The Super Eagles will be given the opportunity to get their revenge on the South Africans who thwarted their qualification to defend their AFCON title in Equatorial Guinea in January.
