  • 90'

    South Africa now wait to see who will join them in a four-team group with only the group winners qualifying to go to the World Cup in Russia 2018.

  • 90'

    Bafana are through to the next round of World Cup qualification. The work was done in Angola in the first leg thanks to the 3-1 victory, and finished off today.

  • 90'

    Full-time - 1- 0. That is the full time whistle. Bafana win the match by the add goal thanks to Dinis who put the ball into his own net in the 66th minute.

  • 90'

    Three minutes added time to be played. Bafana can smell the next round of qualification.

  • 88'

    Golson is clean through on goal and puts the ball in the back of teh net but is flagged offside. That sums up Angola's evening. They will not be going to Russia in 2018.

  • 85'

    Angola get a corner and the ball is knocked into the danger area but Bastos headers the ball over the bar. Not happening for the visitors today.

  • 81'

    Bafana look fairly comfortable in the game with their one goal lead, 4-1 on aggregate, and are just looking to see out the remainder of the game.

  • 79'

    Angola get a free kick on the edge of the 18-yard area. Fredy lines it up. Firmly struck, just over the bar, certainly troubled a sprawling Mabokgwane.

  • 76'

    Bafana make their final change as Kamohelo Mokojti replaces Bongani Zungu in the middle of the park.

  • 75'

    Serero has certainly made a difference since coming on. Bafana look far more threatening going forward.

  • 72'

    Zungu takes a shot, a real piledriver that the keeper fails to hang on to. Rantie gets booked after a foul on an Angola defender in trying to get to the rebound.

  • 67'

    GOAL - 1-0 - A corner by Masango is headed down by Rantie and Dinis puts the ball into his own net. Bafana take the lead.

  • 65'

    Masango disappointingly hits the free kick straight against the wall.

  • 64'

    Fabricio Mafuta is booked by the referee as he brings down Vilakazi in a dangerous area just outside the box.

  • 63'

    The double substition from th home side has had the desired effect on the game as yet. Can they spark something?

  • 60'

    Bafane make another substitution with Thulani Serero replacing Mpho Makola.

  • 59'

    Bafana change: Sibusiso Vilakazi replaces striker Thamsanqa Gabuza, who has been ineffective in this game.

  • 57'

    Golson is through on goal, goes around the Mabokgwane but hits the upright with his effort. Best chance of the game so far. Still goalless.

  • 55'

    Dean Furman, who has replaced the suspeded Adile Jali in the Bafana midfield, has done well in snuffing out most of the Angola attacks.

  • 52'

    Golson Dala goes on a mazy run for Angola down the left wing but Erick Mathoho does well to stop him in his tracks.

  • 49'

    Masango has a shot from outside the box but the ball sails over the bar.

  • 46'

    Bafana kick off the second half and immediately launch an attack. Gabuza goes down inside the box butno penalty given.

  • 45'

    Halftime at the Moses Mabhida Stadium wth the score still goalless. Bafana will be the happier of the two sides as they preserve their two-goal lead from the first-leg.

  • 44'

    Thulani Hlatshwayo is the first player in the referee's book after a wild challenge on Dolly Menga, yellow card.

  • 43'

    Masango takes a free kick from the right, it was more a cross than a shot, easily collected by Antonio in the Angola goal.

  • 42'

    Ball crossed into the area by Matlaba but Gabuza commits a foul on the keeper, free kick.

  • 39'

    Both sides do not look like they will be scoring in this match. Both teams poor in the final third of the pitch.

  • 35'

    Angola win a corner on the right-hand side to be taken by Fredy. It is whipped intoi a good area but the header is wide.

  • 31'

    Bafana have somehow lost the spark that they had in Benguela just four days ago.

  • 28'

    Very poor crowd at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this evening, barely half of the 85 000 capacity.

  • 26'

    Bafana with sporadic attacks but the Angola defence is standing firm.

  • 23'

    Joao Diniz has a shot from a long way out but the ball sails a long way wide of Mabokgwane's goal.

  • 21'

    Rantie finds himself with space in the penalty area but instead of shooting from a tight angle, he passes and the opportunity comes to nought.

  • 17'

    Bafana string a few neat passes together and Thabo Matlaba fins space on the left-hand side, close to the Angalo box, but the attack fizzles out.

  • 14'

    Angola should have taken the lead as Mabokgwane in the Bafana goal fails to gather a straight forward ball from a corner but Fredy fails to capitalise and Bafana clear their lines.

  • 13'

    Bafana are now dominating possession, stringing along multiple passes without making to much headway.

  • 10'

    Mandla Masango curls a frre kick into the 18-yard area from the right-hand side that is easily cleared.

  • 8'

    Good work from Tokelo Rantie sees Bafana win a corner that is whipped in by Mpho Makola but is scrambled clear by the Angolan defence.

  • 6'

    Angola striker Fredy heads harmlessly over Mabokgwane's bar from a cross on the right-hand side.

  • 3'

    Angola have more of the ball but are just content to keep possession without being any threat on attack.

  • 1'

    Angola kicked off as they look to erase the two goal advantage that hosts have.

  • 0'

    Angola XI: Antonio, Mafuta, Gelson, Fredy, Menga, Bastos, Miguel, Gomito, Diniz, Cardoso, Isaac.

  • 0'
