SA team suffered at the hands of Equatorial Guinea team at Caf confederation first-leg

Gallants were defeated 2-1 by Futuro Kings of Equatorial Guinea, despite having only 13 players available and no goalie for the first round, first-leg encounter.

As a result of a series of visa-related administrative problems, goalkeeper Washington Arubi arrived just two hours before kick-off on Saturday.

Last Tuesday, Bahlabane Ba Ntwa flew out to Equatorial Guinea on a voyage that included stops in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Malabo, and Bata before landing in Mongomo on Saturday.

The following day, they endured a long road ride from Mongomo to neighboring Cameroon, which took all day due to covid-related procedural delays at the border.

This meant they missed their flight out of Yaounde and had to deal with additional travel issues in order to pay their hotel bill for the night.

Gallants eventually took out on Monday and arrived in Johannesburg in the early hours of Tuesday morning, before continuing on to their headquarters in Polokwane, where they arrived shortly before noon.

Gallants coach Sebastien Migne is preparing his team for the return match against Futuro Kings this weekend at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
