Cape Town - Bafana Bafana have beaten Angola by 1-0 in a scrappy encounter at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Victory confirms their participation in the next round of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. 

As it happened: South Africa v Angola 

In a scrappy affair, Shakes Mashaba's men were happy to sit back and absorb pressure from the visitors, a tactic that might have backfired had the Angolan players not left their shooting boots at home.

Bafana Bafana were more attacking in the second-half and scored the goal that put the aggregate result beyond doubt when in the 67th minute, Tokelo Rantie rose unmarked in the penalty area to head a cross towards goal. The ball deflected off an unlucky Manucho Diniz into the Angolan net. 

This gave Bafana Bafana a 1-0 win on the night and a 4-1 aggregate win overall.
