Bafana Bafana advance to next round of CHAN qualifiers
Bafana Bafana edged the Zebras 1-0 in the second leg match of the 2018 CHAN qualifiers played at the Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg.
CAPE TOWN - A first half strike by Ryan Moon ensured South Africa maintains their dominance over Botswana as Bafana Bafana edged the Zebras 1-0 in the second leg match of the 2018 CHAN qualifiers played at the Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg.
The South Africans came into the return leg with a comfortable 2-0 away victory to their name after a brilliant performance in Botswana last week.
The 19-year-old could have registered his brace just a few minutes later after pouncing on a loose ball in the Botswana danger area to unleash a snap shot that went straight at the keeper, Mwampole Masule.
Botswana hardly troubled the home side, failing to send not a single attempt at goal throughout the half while the hosts continued piling on the pressure.
Alexander Cole’s well-struck volley in the 30th minute almost caught Masule off guard who watched the ball go over the bar.
With a victory well on the cards, Bafana resorted to keeping possession and making the Zebras chase shadows for the remainder of the match.
The result sees Bafana advancing to the next round of qualifiers with a tricky encounter against Zambia on the cards.
