South Africa will play Jamaica in a friendly in Kingston on 8 May. It will be the first visit to the Caribbean by the 1996 African champions.

Hristo Stoichkov, the 33-year-old striker, will join Bulgaria's 19-man squad on Thursday ahead of a four-team tournament in Hong Kong later this month. Stoichkov now plays for the Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol, and is one of only two foreign-based players Bulgaria's coach Dimitar Dimitrov could call up. Sporting Lisbon's Ivailo Yordanov is also joining the squad but other were not released by their clubs. The other teams involved in the tournament are a Hong Kong XI, Mexico and Egypt.
