JOHANNESBURG - Bafana Bafana are through to the semifinals of the 2013 COSAFA Cup after beating Namibia 2-1.

All three goals came in the second half as Jabulani Shongwe and Hlompho Kekana scored for South Africa before Namibia scored from the penalty spot.

But it was controversial goal for the opposition.

As goal-keeper and team Captain Wayne Sandilands saved the penalty, the referee let Willy Stephanus retake it.

Stephanus then slotted it in.

However, there's no inclination Bafana coach Gordon Igesund will complain about that as the side walks away victorious.
