1 min read

Bafana Bafana will take on Uganda in a friendly at the Orlando Stadium on Thursday, 10 June.

Kick-off is scheduled for 18:00.

New national coach Hugo Broos won’t be in attendance. The 69-year-old is reportedly still in Belgium where he’s either received – or will receive – the second of his Covid-19 vaccination injections.

In his continued absence, assistant coaches Janevski Cedomir and Helman Mkhalele will take charge of the match.

Bafana Bafana have been hard hit with withdrawals this week due to Covid-19 with as many as SIX players forced out of the match with four late replacements called up.
