A hastily assembled Bafana Bafana put up a five-star performance to wallop Mauritius 3-0 at Dobsonville Stadium in this entertaining CHAN qualifier on a cold Saturday afternoon in Soweto.
Bafana Bafana’s preparations were rocked by a spate of massive withdrawals but those who were called up to fill in the void defied the odds as South Africa put the visitors to sword from the word go.
What makes this victory more superb is the fact that the team only trained once – on Friday – after half the team had left camp for their respective clubs.
Goals by in-form Thamsanqa Gabuza and a double by Siphelele Ntshangase condemned the Indian Ocean Islanders to a huge defeat and Bafana Bafana will start as favourites to progress to the next round when the two meet in the return fixture in two weeks’ time in Curepipe.
