Bafana to play Brazil

Bafana Bafana will play Brazil in either South America or the United States

Posted: 20 June 2012 Time: 01:17 pm

Bafana Bafana will play Brazil in either South America or the United States in September. 

While the rest of Africa is involved in 2013 Nations Cup qualifiers, Bafana will be involved in a high-profile friendly with the 2014 Fifa World Cup hosts.   The venue has yet to be confirmed, but could be announced by the end of the week.   Being part of the Fifa calendar, it means both sides should be at full strength for the encounter, which will be a big baptism of fire for the new Bafana coach.   The game will more than likely be played on Friday, September 7, with Bafana returning to South Africa to play against an African opponent on Tuesday, September 11.   Brazil had originally proposed the September 11 date, but have since suggested the game be played four days earlier.   Safa have cancelled plans for an August friendly, meaning this will likely be the first game in charge for either Steve Komphela or Gordan Igesund, depending on who is handed the Bafana reins.   Other confirmed matches for Bafana include an away trip to Poland on October 12 and another game against African opponents at home on October 16.   They will also play Zambia in the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge on November 14.

Will they have the guts to give a good display? Bo Tecow Modise tlabe ba tatazela mo, Cant even shoot straight.

SAFA-ring should finalise the coach and stop this shortlist nonsense. If you cannot beat Botwana in their backyard you are going be embarassed by Brazil in the Americas!!!

Unneccesary game. How many times have we played Brazil now? I've lost count. In fact, they're no longer the dominant "Powerhouse" they used to be. Let's play Spain, Chile, Argentina, Russia, or South Korea! Let's globe trot a bit and not play the same old teams as always.

We're going nowhere with this as a football nation.

At last SAFA listen to us especially de Galaxians as we don't take kak playing more away games with strong oponents, next away games should be here in Africa between Morocco, Senegal, Sierra leone or even Nigeria stil fine.

Thanx Bafana i hope SABC 's aware about dat.

OMG, I forsee disaster, the mother of all catastrophies, a Powerline FC drubbing- I can only sympathize with the new coach and the morale of the players, who by the way after the Powerline fc score will be rushing to get Neymar's signature or jersey- pathetic!!!

If they think success is infectious they must think again. Playing Brazil will not make Bafunny luk smart but they will be xposed as mediocre. I hope they play this game away so that they spare this shameful dance.

Could this be another way of injecting some funds into Brazil ahead of 2014 WC? We all know they are strugling and are behind schedule due to lack of funds. I would personal prefer us playing the likes of Germany, Italy or even England.
