Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos said he was happy that the South African Football Association (SAFA) will charter a flight to Nigeria next week and then return home a few hours later before heading to Bloemfontein.

The former African champions will face the Super Eagles at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Friday, June 7.

Broos’ side will then return home for the clash with Zimbabwe at the Free State Stadium, Blomfeintein three days later.

“It is very important that we are travelling by charter,” Broos told SAFA.net.

“You can spend two days travelling (on a commercial airline). You leave on Wednesday and arrive on Thursday night, it’s terrible. We did it two years ago against Ethiopia, we won here against Ethiopia, but we ran after the ball, we didn’t touch the ball and we won it. But we could have lost that game because the players were exhausted.

“We could not to repeat that again and SAFA did a very big effort to have that charter. I’m very happy with it. So now we will fly to Lagos, from Lagos to Uyo, done.

“Okay, the flight will not be two or three hours, but it’s only Lagos and we are finished. This is what I wanted and again, I’m very happy that we could achieve it.”
