Andile Dlamini in the South African goal produced an outstanding display to thwart Sweden on a number of occasions.

After losing 2-1 to the Netherlands on Saturday, South Africa, runners up at the AFCON tournament to Nigeria last year, have proved that they will be no pushovers at the upcoming Soccer World Cup scheduled in June this year.
