Cape Town - Fans showed up in their masses at OR Tambo International Airport on Tuesday to congratulate Bafana Bafana on qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

Fans were in full voice and expressed their excitement by singing and dancing as they welcomed Stuart Baxter's side who successfully qualified for Africa's showpiece tournament after a 2-1 win over Libya in Tunisia on Sunday.

Two goals by talisman Percy Tau inspired Bafana to a historic win after they needed only a draw to qualify behind Nigeria in Group E.

Baxter's men will take their place in the newly expanded 24-team tournament to be played in Egypt between June 21 and July 19.
