Sports Feature Sports Chipolopolo - Bafana Friendly Postponed

Zambia’s friendly against South Africa that was scheduled for September 7 at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka has been postponed.

The friendly has been postponed due to security concern due to the xenophobic attacks currently taking place in South Africa.

“The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to inform members of the public that the international friendly match between Zambia and South Africa that was scheduled for National Heroes Stadium on Saturday, September 7, 2019 has been rescheduled to the next FIFA window,”FAZ spokesperson Mwazi Chanda said.

” FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala made the announcement in a statement saying that the decision was arrived at in consultation with the South African Football Association.”

But Zambia has a plan B friendly away to Namibia in Windhoek on September 9.

Chipolopolo are currently in camp in Lusaka under Aggrey Chiyangi ahead of departure for Windhoek on September 7.

  1. Due to security concerns?????
    Is FAZ concerned that South Africans will be playing with knives and fire at Heroes Stadium?

  2. South Africa’s leadership is very weak; they have continually failed to provide leadership and direction to thier followers – they can’t face them and tell them the truth in their face. How can you fix a problem that you can’t acknowledge to have; they keep issuing ‘politically correct statements’ but they can’t take responsibility for these barbaric acts perpetrated by their people. Even Mr Lungu in Zambia took persaonal responsibilty when such similar acts were done against some foreign national is Lusaka some time last year, in fact he had sent soldiers to deal with the situation at once.
    RSA needs to return back to God. 2 Chronicles 7:14.

  3. kudos to FAZ and all who were involved in the decision ,for making a strong statement that xenophobia in any of its forms should not be tolerated.
