Cape Town - Bafana Bafana defeated hosts Zambia 2-0 in the final of the four nations tournament played at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Saturday evening.
It was Mamelodi Sundowns striker Percy Tau and Lille forward Lebo Mothiba who scored a goal apiece.
Earlier in the third place play-off played at the same venue Angola defeated Zimbabwe 6-4 on post match penalties following a 2-2 draw after regulation time
With the two sides sizing each other in the opening exchanges, it was the hosts who had the first chance of the match when Justin Shonga was released at the top of the box only for his low effort to be kept out by Itumeleng Khune's left foot.
But South Africa would take the lead on 15 minutes when Toaster Nsabata came out to make an aerial save but dropped the ball in the path of Percy Tau who drove his effort into an empty net.
Tau would have added another goal seven minutes later when he beat the offside trap and, with only the goalkeeper to beat, drove his effort wide of target.
Shonga would test Khune again in the 24th minute but his effort from a free kick was straight at the goalkeeper.
With neither side threatening, it was the visitors who would take a 1-0 lead at the break.
The hosts had sustained moments of pressure after the break but Bafana Bafana managed to deal with the danger every time.
The two sides made several substitutions, and for the visitors, it was Mothiba who had replaced Tau in the 88 minute who added to their advantage.
