Durban – Bafana Bafana began their preparations for their upcoming friendlies with a huge damper as an administration error prevented them from partaking in their first training session at the Dobsonville Stadium.
The South African national will play host to two friendly matches in the next week. The first against Sierra Leone on Saturday and then Botswana the following Tuesday as Head Coach Hugo Broos steps up preparations for the continuation of AFCON qualifiers.
According to Timeslive, coach Broos was visibly frustrated at having to write off an important training session as he looks to merge the new faces with his already formed core.
“I didn’t know we couldn’t train on the pitch today. If you ask me where we are going to train, I can’t answer you because we didn’t do it (Bafana did not get the arrangements wrong),” Broos said as SA held a press conference at Dobsonville Stadium on Monday.
