Madagascar has resolved to emulate Zambia and call off their international friendly match against South Africa which was schedule to be played on Saturday 7th September.

The South African Football Association has revealed that Madagascar withdrew from the clash but did not give reasons for the withdrawal.

Both Zambia and Madagascar made the decision following the violence against foreign nationals that has erupted in South Africa where five people have so far been slaughtered to death.

The decision has elated soccer lovers across that country who are of the view that South Africa should be taught lessons.

“SAFA regrets to inform the public that the match between Bafana Bafana and Madagascar scheduled for this coming Saturday (7 September) has been called off after the visitors (Madagascar) decided to withdraw from the encounter,” announced the South African Football Association.
