Bafana Bafana to host Angola in East London

Bafana reported for camp on Sunday, and Owen Da Gama will put his charges through their paces as soon as they arrive in Durban on Monday

The South African Football Association (Safa) has announced the Buffalo City Stadium as the venue for Bafana Bafana's international friendly match against Angola.

The match is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28 at 19h00 CAT.

Bafana reported for camp on Sunday afternoon, and will today (Monday) fly to Durban to prepare for Saturday's international match against Guinea-Bissau which will be played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Interim coach Owen Da Gama is expected to have all his 25 players in camp this afternoon, including the likes of Thulani Serero and Kamohelo Mokotjo who are both based in Holland.

Mokotjo's eligibility has been questioned after he was included in the current squad despite changing his nationality late last year.

However, Safa president Dr Danny Jordaan was confident the midfielder would honour the call-up and report for camp.

The two international friendlies come at a time when Safa is still trying to find a new coach for the South African senior national team.

A few high-profile coaches have been linked with the plum job, but the country's FA is yet to make a decision on who Shakes Mashaba's successor will be.

Da Gama will remain in charge of Bafana until the associations finds a suitabile replacement for the 66-year-old Mashaba.
