Bafana Bafana's plans have been rocked by the ongoing turmoil in the country, which has now led to a decision on their fixture against Madagascar.
Molefi Ntseki's tenure has gotten off to a turbulent start as Bafana may have to cancel their current camp following yet another withdrawal, this time Barea refusing to honour their agreement for a friendly fixture this weekend.
It has been said the reason for their refusal to travel to South Africa is down to the spate of xonophobic attacks on foriegn nationals that has spread throughout the country.
Zambia earlier withdrew for the same reason, after they were initially scheduled to host Bafana at the Heroes Stadium in Lusaka on Saturday.
SAFA will now have to scramble to secure another opponent, although it is unlikely to happen given the short notice and limited time to finalise logistics, unless the fixture is moved to Monday or Tuesday next week.
