Bafana Bafana defender Erick Mathoho has been withdrawn from the national squad for the international friendly match against Swaziland at the Somhlolo Stadium on Wednesday.

“The South Africans will be without defender Erick Mathoho who has been withdrawn from the match due to family commitments,” read a statement on the official Safa website.

“Mathoho will, however, join Bafana on Thursday, March 26 in Nelspruit ahead of the second international friendly match which will be against Nigeria.”

Bafana will play neighbours Swaziland on Wednesday and Nigeria four days later at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
