Cape Town - The South African Football Association (SAFA) president, Danny Jordaan, has congratulated Bafana Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki and his charges for their 2-1 win over Mali in the Nelson Mandela Challenge played on Sunday at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

"If you look the overall performance of the team, they showed commitment, a lot of confidence when they were in possession and they defended well," Jordaan said.

"I think credit must also go to Mali, they have a very good team.

"They have very good individual players, they had the structure but I think we had the upper hand in the general performance of the game itself."

This was Ntseki’s first assignment in charge of the South African Senior Men’s National Team, which Jordaan described as the dawn of a new era.

Dean Furman and substitute Themba Zwane grabbed the goals for Bafana Bafana in front of a crowd of just over 18-thousand fans.

Next month, South Africa takes on Ghana and Sudan at the start of the Cameroon 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Meanwhile, Sao Tome and Principe has joined Bafana Bafana in Group C.

Listen to what Jordaan had to say:


November 15, 2019: v Ghana (A)

November 19, 2019: v Sudan (H)

September 4, 2020: v Sao Tome (H)
