Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune was delighted with the way his teammates played in their 2-0 victory over Mauritius on Sunday, saying that they are finally getting the desired combinations going inside the field of play.

South Africa enjoyed an easy win over Mauritius in the second leg of the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier at the Anjalay stadium - courtesy of goals from Mandla Masango and Wandisile Letlabika.

South African won 5-0 on aggregate after defeating Mauritius 3-0 at home three weeks ago.

“Spider-Kid” believes that Bafana Bafana will give their upcoming opponents a much tougher assignments due to their current style of play in both 2016 CHAN and 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Addressing the reporters at the OR Tambo international Airport on Monday, the 28-year-old shot stopper hinted that it will be significant if the national team manage to win all their home matches because they always battle to cope when they play away from home.

“I think it was a tough match we had on Sunday," said Khune

“But the team which the coach has assembled did very well and we are starting to gel as a team.”

“So in the upcoming games I think we’ll be able to give our opponents much tougher games.

“But it will be more important if we can win all our home games both for CHAN and AFCON qualifiers.

“Because we all know that it is always tough to play away from home.”
