Cape Town - Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa feels that Congo did their homework in the return leg of the AFCON qualifier in Polokwane.

According to Soccer Laduma, Meyiwa believes that the Diables Rouges were “very organised” and stubborn in their defensive approach.

"It was a difficult game, we beat them in Congo, so they wanted to fight back, you can see that they were defensive, they didn't want to lose today,” said Meyiwa.

“We tried our best to make sure that we create some scoring opportunities, but they were very organised today."

However despite the goalkeepers disappointment not to get the three points, the 27-year-old is optimistic about getting a point in wet conditions.

"For me it's a great feeling, but we wanted three points, but that's football, they went back to their drawing board to check their weak points from the previous game, so obviously they were well prepared and for us get a point and not to concede is a great thing for us," added Meyiwa.

South Africa will host Sudan in mid-November, before travelling to the ever-tricky Nigeria shortly after.

Teams:

South Africa: Meyiwa, Hlatshwayo, Mathoho, Coetzee, Khumalo, Furman, Jali, Masango, Serero (Manyisa 67’), Rantie (Vilakazi 80’), Ndulula (Erasmus 63’).

Congo: Massa, F N’Ganga (Boukama 77’), Baudry, Moutou, I Nganga, Ngonga, Ndinga, Oniangue, Gandze, Dore, Bifouma.
