- Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates find themselves in a debacle that has resulted from the updated Covid-19 regulations in Angola
- The two teams are both meant two face two Angolan opponents, Primeiro de Agosto and Segrada Esperanca
- The team however may not get to complete the second leg of the CAF games because South Africans are not allowed into the country due to its updated restrictions
South African football teams Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs may not get to complete the second leg of the CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup due to updated Covid-19 restrictions in Angola, where they were both set to face two Angolan teams.
Pirates and Chiefs were set to go head to head with Primeiro de Agosto and Segrada Esperanca in the second round of CAF inter-club football. This is something that seems highly unlikely since the country has effectively barred South Africans from visiting since the second strain of Covid-19 hit.
According to a statement released by the Angolan government, a number of countries have been placed under a ban that disallows them from travelling into the country. Citizens from the UK, Nigeria, Australia and South Africa all fall under the list of banned countries.
The South African reports that Kaizer Chiefs had faced Primeiro de Agosto at the FNB stadium during which no team managed to score while Orlando Pirates had faced Segrada Esperanca whom they beat 1-0 during the match that took place in Angola.
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, South African Orlando Pirates player Zakhele Lepasa shared a photo of himself recovering from a recent injury. The young player has been sitting out of the game after having received the injury that left him with a broken leg.
There seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel however as it seems he is in higher spirits and recovering. Taking to Twitter, the young man shared a photograph of himself using crutches to help stand. He captioned the picture of himself:
"Slowly getting there."
Soon his fans and followers were in the comment section sharing well wishes and messages of support with the Orlando Pirates player. Read a few of their comments below.
