Zambia will play South Africa in an international friendly on June 13 2017.

The encounter is scheduled to take place at the Moruleng Stadium and Kick-off is at 19 Hours CAT

The record between the two nations in the previous 17 encounters is even‚ with five wins each and seven draws.

Their last meeting was a pre-Nations Cup warm-up in January 2015 when a Thuso Phala goal was enough to seal a 1-0 victory for Bafana.

Zambia‚ who lifted the Nations Cup title in 2012‚ are rebuilding their national team under former Kaizer Chiefs striker Wedson Nyirenda and played to a 0-0 draw in Gabon in a friendly on Sunday.

Before that they drew 0-0 in Zimbabwe in March‚ and in their last World Cup qualifier were unfortunate not to come away with a win in Cameroon in a game that ended 1-1.

The game will be a second in charge for new coach Stuart Baxter and will come after the side return from Nigeria where they play an African Nations Cup qualifier on Saturday.

It will be a first ever match for the side at the 2010 FIFA World Cup training venue that sits 65-kilometres from Rustenburg‚ but an 18th meeting against Zambia‚ comfortably their most frequent opponents since South Africa returned to international football 25 years ago.

  1. AFRICA should take FIFA to task and start asking questions as to why No African country has ever won the World Cup. Why do they always use Referee’s to stop African countries to advance to the finals. It’s not a question of skill. Europe has a lot of Africans playing in their clubs.

    • No asian country has won it and no north American country has won it so there’s a con spiracy against them too according to your hypochondric crazy suspicions. No European has won the steeplechase and no white man has won the 100 or 200 metres so Africa has conspired to stop whites from winning? If you’re going to accuse anyone have facts or a logical argument

  2. Dat is r gud 1 i oso sapot dat 1 zmbia nation vs u20 sqad dat is 4 faz 2 fandrez mny;let dem strt at heros in lusaka and latr at levy in ndola

  3. Everyday its Bafana. Can’t we play real teams like Nigeria, ivory coast, Ghana or France?
