SAFA confirm next Bafana fixture

SA National Teams

The South African Football Association (SAFA) have confirmed that Bafana Bafana will face Uganda in an international friendly next month, with Hugo Broos expected to be absent.

Broos, 69, was appointed as Molefi Ntseki's successor after the South African was relieved of his duties upon the team's failure to qualify for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The Belgian coach, who lifted the 2017 AFCON with the Indomitable Lions, was roped in to prepare Bafana for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, which have since been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

SAFA have now confirmed that a friendly fixture has been secured for the national team next month, as they face Uganda on June 10 but Broos is set to be in his homeland for his Covid-19 vaccination.

His assistant Cedomir Janevski, who's set to complete his season in Cyprus with Olympiakos Nicosia is likely to be in charge of the first game of the new tenure.

The Cranes who are in the process of a rebuild following the retirement of captain Denis Onyango, Hassan Wasswa and Michael Azira also failed to reach Cameroon 2021 and subsequently sacked Johnny Mckinstry as head coach.
