This comes after Angola cancelled today’s game just hours before kick-off.

The Angolans are citing lack of training as the reason for the cancellation.

“Angola says they have not had any training since arriving in Egypt two days ago,” read a tweet from Safa.

Bafana will now head to the tournament having only played one friendly against Ghana, which ended in a 0-0 draw in Dubai.
