Bafana v Algeria tie kickoff moved



Fears about energy sapping heat have seen South Africa put back the kick off of Saturday’s international against Algeria from an mid-afternoon start to the evening.

The game at the Orlando Stadium will now begin at 8:15pm (CAT, GMT +2), moved from the original kick off time of 3:30pm.

A statement from the South African Football Association said: “The time of the clash has been moved due to the prevailing heat wave in the country, a factor which both teams said will not suit players, just a week before the start of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations South Africa 2013.”

Bafana Bafana meet the second ranked side in Africa for the first time in 13 years but this is the first friendly encounter between the two nations.

Both previous match-up have come at Nations Cup finals where Bafana have an unbeaten record, with a win and a draw.

South Africa beat Algeria 2-1 in the 1996 Nations Cup quarterfinal at Soccer City with a late goal from John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu.

The two countries met again at the 2000 Nations Cup in Kumasi, Ghana, where their 1-1 draw ensured that both sides advanced to the quarterfinals of the competition.

Shaun Bartlett gave Bafana a second minute lead but Fawzi Moussouni equalised just after halftime.
