Bafana failed to qualify for Chan 2015

Angola vs Bafana BafanaSouth Africa were eliminated from the Rwanda CHAN 2016 tournament despite displaying some amazing heroics in the Angolan capital of Luanda in the second leg on Saturday.

This CHAN team will look back at the 2-0 defeat in the first leg at the Rand Stadium last Saturday as the encounter that they let the qualification slip out of their hands.

On a mild Saturday afternoon in this coastal city, South Africa matched Angola pound for pound and with a bit of luck and better experience, could easily have stolen the game away from the hosts by a wider margin.

But they had to settle for a good 2-1 win and bow out 3-2 on aggregate. But they will still hold their heads high considering most players hardly have game time at their respective clubs, and to come to Angola and beat the hosts in their backyard and something both coach Ephraim Mashaba and his assistant Thabo Senong will be proud of.
