Bafana Bafana will play The Pharaohs of Egypt in the 22nd Edition of the Nelson Mandela Challenge at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Tuesday, 6 September 2016. The match kicks off at 19h00.
The clash comes just three days after South Africa rounds off their 2017 Gabon African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mauritania.
This will be the third time Egypt and South Africa meet in the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge.
The two nations locked horns for the first time in the 5th Edition played at FNB Stadium on 16 December, 1998.
The hosts won 2-1.
The two African giants met again on 15 November 2006, this time on neutral ground in Brentfort, London in England.
The North Africans emerged 1-0 winners in the 12th Edition.
This annual event is one of the ways used to continue the legacy of the late State President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, also known as The Father of the Nation, with proceeds going to aid the children in South Africa through the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund programmes.
