National senior men’s team coach Shakes Mashaba says the Nelson Mandela Challenge is the only trophy Bafana Bafana needs to win annual ahead of the game against Egypt next month.

“This is not a threat. This is one trophy we need to win annually and will strive to retain it again this year,” said Mashaba at a press conference to announce Egypt as this year’s opponents,” Mashaba told Safa media.

Mashaba’s men will lock horns with the North African side for the competition which celebrates the life of the late South African President Nelson Mandela.

The match will take place on the 6th of September at the Orlando Stadium.
