Bafana Bafana will no longer play Argentina before the South American nation heads off to the World Cup, national team coach Stuart Baxter revealed.

“We had the game against Argentina that was very close to fruition pulled because Argentina has a disappointing result against Spain and chosen not to play one more game,” said Baxter.

With the Argentina friendly out, Baxter is hoping to take his team to India for a tournament but says right now he will focus on the upcoming Cosafa Cup to be played from May 27 to June 9 in Limpopo.

“The India tournament is in the balance. If the India tour is on, then I will take part in that. But at the moment, I will concentrate on Cosafa because that is the one we got.”
