The friendly match was scheduled for Tuesday, 7 June outside South Africa.
“After careful evaluation of the final logistical arrangements following the team’s arrival from Gambia, it has been decided to cancel the planned away friendly International and give the players a well deserved rest after a long season,” said SAFA CEO Dennis Mumble.
“That would have been taxing and unfair for the players and the entire team,” added Mumble.
Bafana Bafana face Gambia on Saturday, 4 June 2016 at the Independence Stadium in Bakau, Gambia.
Their next assignment is the final AFCON 2017 qualifier against Mauritania scheduled for Saturday, 4 September 2016 in South Africa.
