Madagascar football team has withdrawn from an international friendly game with South African Football team slated to hold on Saturday, September 7.
This is because of the xenophobic attack which happened recently in South Africa. Madagascar is not the only country that has pulled out from an international friendly game against South Africa, Zambian Football Team also pulled out for same reason.
