Bafana To Turn Down Thai Invite?

Soccer Laduma have been informed that the South African Football Association (SAFA) are likely to turn down an invite to compete in the 2018 King’s Cup in Thailand.

The Siya crew reported earlier in the week that the FA had received an invite for the senior men’s national team, Bafana Bafana, to compete in the Kings Cup in Thailand which will be taking place in Bangkok next month.

Though the likes of Gabon, Slovakia and the United Arab Emirates are all said to have been confirmed for this year’s edition of the tournament, a reliable Siya source has confirmed that it is unlikely that Bafana will be heading to Thailand to participate in the tournament.  

“The objective of SAFA is to ensure that Bafana Bafana need to play highly ranked opposition and thus playing in this competition does not fulfil that mandate,” said the source.

“Since the tournament itself is not an official FIFA event participating teams are not obliged to bring their full strength squads meaning that the teams will likely be not at their full strengths,” added the Siya source.

Meanwhile, Bafana will be resuming their 2019 AFCON qualifiers in September this year.
