The South African Football Association (SAFA) has informed their Nigeria Football Federation counterpart of their travel plans ahead of Friday’s crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying match billed for the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

According to SAFA, “Its delegation of Bafana Bafana is expected to arrive in Nigeria tomorrow’sW Wednesday, with the team already booked into Four Points By Sheraton Hotel in Ikot-Ekpene.”

Meanwhile, Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has been forced to make one change to his already selected 23-member squad due to injury.

Grant Kekana has withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad due to injury, and he has been replaced by Kaizer Chiefs defender Given Msimango.

Kekana suffered an injury in Saturday’s Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates where he only lasted for the first half before being replaced by Junior Mendieta.

Now, Msimango will get a chance to raise his hand and convince Broos to select him for future Bafana Bafana matches.

He is the only player representing Chiefs in the current Bafana Bafana squad – Msimango was also in the 36-man preliminary squad
