Bafana Bafana will play a friendly against the Stallions on February 9.
South Africa will play an international friendly match against Burkina Faso during the FIFA break of February 9, South Africa Football Association (SAFA) CEO Lesley Sedibe confirmed on Friday.

The game will hold at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, according to a SAFA statement.

Pitso Mosimane's men are warming up for their double clash against the Pharaohs of Egypt in March and June in Group G of the 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifying rounds currently topped by South Africa with four points.

The Stallions will use the encounter to fine tune ahead of their Group F face-off against Namibia in Ouagadougou next March, after an inspiring 3-1 win over the Scorpions of Gambia in the first round.

Group F shrunk to three teams after the withdrawal of Mauritania from the qualifiers, leaving Burkina Faso (3 pts), the Gambia (3 pts) and Namibia (0 pt).
