Bafana Bafana return to action this afternoon when they host Namibia in an international friendly at the Orlando Stadium.
Hugo Broos’ side will be looking to continue their upward trajectory with another important victory against a dangerous Namibia side.
The last time Broos’ side took to the field of play was during their incredible victory over FIFA World Cup semi-finalists Morocco back in June.
Bucs speedster and Namibian legend Deon Hotto will face some of his teammates this afternoon.
The 32-year-old winger has made over 60 appearances for the Namibian national team and they’ll definitely be looking towards him to conjure up some magic against South Africa.
Today’s friendly match between Bafana and Morocco gets underway at 15:00 SAST. The match will be televised live on SABC 1. You’ll also be able to live stream the clash on the SABC SPORT website.
“What is happening at Al Ahly is that I don’t play 90 minutes anymore. I don’t know if you guys have noticed that,” Bafana star Percy Tau told members of the media.
“This is because I always got injured between the 75th minute to 90th minute. Now I play less minutes but I also do a lot of work in the gym. I try to strengthen my legs and upper body and that has been the secret so far. ”
“I’m happy with the opponents of next week, they are two teams who qualified or who nearly qualified for AFCON,” Bafana coach Hugo Broos said as quoted by FarPost.
“That means that they are strong teams. As I always said before, I like to play against more stronger teams. It’s better for us, you become better by playing against such teams.”
