The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has confirmed that the critical 2022 Qatar Fifa World Cup qualifier between Ghana and Bafana Bafana would be broadcast live on Sunday.
Bafana Bafana, who landed in Ghana on Friday, will face the Black Stars at Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday (kickoff 9pm), with the goal of advancing to the final round of the qualifiers.
Bafana Bafana requires a win or a draw to advance, while Ghana requires a victory.
Following Ghana's 1-1 tie with Ethiopia on Thursday afternoon and South Africa's subsequent victory over Zimbabwe, Bafana Bafana (13 points, +5 goal difference) now leads Group G by three points over the second-placed Black Stars (10 points, +3 difference).
If Ghana wins by a single goal on Sunday, they will have a +4 goal difference, whereas SA would have a +4 goal difference (both on 13 points). The most goals scored in the group is the next criterion. Both Bafana and Ghana now have six points, therefore a win for the Black Stars would give them an extra point and advance them to the next round.
"SABC Sport is ecstatic with our Bafana Bafana team's performance, and we will unwaveringly back them," said Gary Rathbone, general manager of SABC Sport.
"The talent on exhibit has boosted the spirit of our country, and as SABC Sport, we are thrilled to broadcast this world-class match this Sunday."
"We feel that the broadcast reinforces our #WeLoveItHere message to our viewers, as we continue to be committed to displaying the finest in African sport to the millions of South Africans."
