    JOHANNESBURG: The South African national football and rugby union teams will play in a Soweto stadium on August 17 to honour critically ill former president Nelson Mandela, it was announced Tuesday. Bafana Bafana (The Boys) meet Burkina Faso in a friendly match and the Springboks tackle Argentina in an opening-round fixture of the Rugby Championship (formerly Tri-Nations). Mandela had a close association with the teams — inspiring the Springboks to victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup and Bafana to success in the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations.
