Bafana Bafana have been drawn in Group D alongside Ivory Coast, Morocco and Namibia for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
South Africa will make their first appearance since 2015 after missing out on the continental showpiece in Equatorial Guinea in 2017.
Stuart Baxter’s charges booked their ticket to the Land of the Pharaohs after overcoming Libya 2-1 in their final group game, and conceded just two goals in the entire qualification campaign, going unbeaten in the process.
Bafana Bafana will open their Afcon campaign with a tough encounter against the 2015 Champions on the 24th of June, and will further look to stretch their unbeaten run against the Elephants.
Their second match will see them face neighbours Namibia on June 28, before they tackle Morocco July 1st in their final group game.
Bafana Record against Afcon opposition:
vs Cote’d Ivoire – P6 W2 D4
vs Namibia – P9 W5 D2 L2
vs Morocco – P6 W2 D3 L1
All the matches will be played at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo.
