Xenophobia: Zambia Football Association cancels international friendly game with South Africa, give reason (video)

Zambia Football Association (ZFA) has cancelled the international friendly game against Bafana Bafana of South Africa at Heroes Stadium on Saturday.

The cancellation came on the heels of the recent xenophobic attack going on in the country.

The national team feared that the game could lead to further diplomatic attacks if the game is allowed to be played.

Football, which is seen as a uniting factor that not only links but strengthens and mend relationships, will not be able to do what it is known for globally.

Andrew Kamanga, president of FAZ confirmed the cancellation on Robert Marawa’s Sport Worldworld.
