Bafana's chances of qualifying for Afcon 2017 left in tatters
A disappointing result for Shakes Mashaba’s men, a second draw in three matches.
JOHANNESBURG - Bafana Bafana's recent run of good results away from home was again put to the test as they travelled to Limbe in Cameroon, still looking for a first win of the qualifiers.
And while It was the home side that started well, asking Itumeleng Khune to make a save as early as the 5th minute, it was Bafana that had the ball in the back of the net 18 minutes in.
Tokelo Rantie used his pace to get to a brilliant through ball from the midfield, the Bournemouth striker rounded the goalkeeper before tapping in for his 10th international goal.
He should have gotten his second after Andile Jali sent him through a minute before the break, and that miss was punished by Sebastien Siani on the stroke of halftime.
His long-range shot finally got the better of Khune who had been unbeatable up until then.
With a goal that will probably go down as one of the best Bafana has ever scored, Hlompo kekana got the visitors back ahead early in the second half.
Well within his own half, the Sundowns anchorman spotted the goalkeeper off his line and sent a brilliant drive into the back of the net.
It stunned the home fans, and got the visitors playing again, much the better side.
That was until questionable defending from a set-piece allowed Nicolas Nkoulou in for his side's second equaliser of the match.
A disappointing result for Shakes Mashaba's men, a second draw in three matches leaving them with a minute chance of making it to Gabon 2017.
