The South African national team arrived in Cairo on Tuesday, and here they are already going through their paces

Bafana Bafana received a major blow to their preparation plans when Angola pulled out of their friendly game on Wednesday.

The Angolan management stated that their team hasn't trained adequately to honour the game, leaving South Africa with just one preparation match in total for their pre-Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) period. That game was a 0-0 draw against Ghana in the United Arab Emirates last week.

Nevertheless, here we can see the Bafana players arrive for training in Egypt. There are also videos of the players warming up and then training.

The South Africans will need to make sure they are completely fit, as the conditions are expected to be quite hot for this Afcon in Cairo.

Bafana take on Ivory Coast in their first match in Cairo on Monday. They also play against Namibia and Morocco in the group stage.
