      Bafana Bafana head coach, Hugo Broos has praised the South African Football Association (SAFA) for the well planned travelling arrangement ahead of next week’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.

      Broos’ side will be away to Nigeria at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Friday, June 7.

      South Africa will welcome neighbours, Zimbabwe to the Free State Stadium, Blomfeintein three days later.

      The Belgian said making the trip to Nigeria via a chartered flight will aid his side’s preparation.

      “It is very important that we are travelling by charter,” he told SAFA.net.

      “You can spend two days travelling (on a commercial airline). You leave on Wednesday and arrive on Thursday night, it’s terrible.

      “We did it two years ago against Ethiopia, we won here against Ethiopia, but we ran after the ball, we didn’t touch the ball and we won it. But we could have lost that game because the players were exhausted.

      “We could not repeat that again and SAFA made a very big effort to have that charter. I’m very happy with it. So now we will fly to Lagos, from Lagos to Uyo, done.”
