As it happened: Ghana 2 - 1 South Africa
According to KickOff, the South African captain admits the team had "good moments" but lost the plot completely as they sat back and allowed the pressure coming from African giants.
"We took the lead then allowed them back into the game. We sat too deep and ultimately that proved costly for us,” said Furman.
"I thought we had good moments but we were not as good as in the previous two games.
Furman further explained that Ghana made Bafana pay for sitting back which saw Ghana equalise and eventually win the encounter 2-1.
"Second half we were poor, we stopped playing the football that was so good for us over the two games.
"We kept giving the ball away, we invited pressure, and against a good side like Ghana they made us pay."
