The Zambian Football Federation has cancelled the international friendly match between its national team and South Africa fixed for Saturday.

The FA President Andrew Kamanga reportedly confirmed that the friendly was cancelled due to the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

He made this known while speaking with Metro FM/Radio 2000 on Tuesday.

“The game is off, and we communicated that to South Africa Football Association and they understood. We have been talking to try and monitor the situation,” Kamanga said.

The SAFA was said to be organising another friendly match with Madagascar.
