As part of activities lined up to honour former South African State President, Dr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, Bafana Bafana will take on reigning African champions Nigeria in an international friendly match in August.

The match will be followed by yet another interesting clash against 2013 Afcon runner-ups, Burkina Faso, in the Nelson Mandela Sport & Culture Day at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 17 August 2013.

Meanwhile the South Africa Football Association (Safa) president has expressed delight over the invitation extended to the national team to honour the former State President.

“It is a great honour for us to be associated with such a huge, significant and highly important project for our former State President,” Safa president Kirsten Nematandani said.

Mandiba is presently on a ‘life support machine’ and President Jacob Zuma has denied reports that the former Head of State is in a ‘vegetative state.’ Safa president however hope he will be present to watch Bafana take on Nigeria.

“We are obviously mindful of the fact that the former president is not well in hospital. We can only wish him all the all the best for him to come out and be among us so he can continue to inspire us as he has done for many years. This event shows that no one can unite the country quite like he has and we are proud to be taking part,” Nematandani added.
