CAPE TOWN – On the demanding field in Sfax, Tunisia, South Africa defeated Libya with 2-1 in the qualifications of Group E of the African Cup of Nations in 2019. t Bafana took second place in her group – the point for Nigeria.

The men of Stuart Baxter, who needed only a draw, set up quite conservatively with five defenders in the early XI. In the first half of the year, there was no goal, which resulted in a series of unusual battles that lasted 45 minutes.

Darren Keet was a safe house. He made a handful of clean savings and looked solid at half-time.

South Africa did not have the most recent achievements in the attack, but it could have been spared because of the tension in Tunisia.

The other half of the team replaced the lack of drama in the first five minutes Percy Tau beat Bafana's team. The goal was to take the wind from the Libyan players and the fans.

Fortunately for Libya they were given a non-harmful criminal decision. The supreme night, Keet's goalkeeper hit the Libyan player at the moment she collected a routine catch. The referee had no doubts and he gave a penalty in favor of Ahmad Benali who did not seem his usual powerful self on the pitch.

It's now 1-1 with 25 minutes from normal time. The goal, of course, was restored by the hard-working Libyan side and their fans. But only three minutes after the equation, Libya again crushed the hammer; a well-stacked piece moved from the corner that saw Tau to grab the shoulder strap.

Not far enough, the right foot broke inside the box to smash the Libyan hearts. This was another moment of the technical genius of the former striker Mamelodi Sundowns, who handed South Africa 2-1.

With just over 20 minutes, the Libyan fans were disappointed and their anger turned out to be in a lot of bottles on the court.

South Africa has kept her nerves and has retained the lead 2-1 for the mass victory which Bafano sent on their
the first Afcon from 2015 under Shakes Mashabo.
