Bafana Bafana defender Eric Mathoho will travel back to South Africa immediately after taking part in Monday’s international friendly against Australia, to attend the funeral of his cousin, who passed away this weekend.

The sad news reached the Kaizer Chiefs defender in Sydney on Sunday, on the eve of Bafana’s friendly international clash with World Cup-bound Socceroos.

The match will take place on Monday, 26 May 2014 at ANZ Stadium at 11h30 South African time.

As a result, Mathoho will not join the rest of the squad in New Zealand for their international friendly in Auckland.

No replacement will be called up to replace the towering Kaizer Chiefs defender.
