JOHANNESBURG - The current xenophobia-related violence in South Africa is now affecting matters on the sporting field.
Bafana Bafana's friendly match against Zambia has been called off.
The two teams were due to play each other in Lusaka on Saturday but the Zambia FA decided against hosting South Africa while foreigners are still being targeted in the country.
The game will now be played in the next international window in October.
The cancellation will delay Molefi Ntseki's Bafana head coach debut.
