29 Mar 19:52
45' One minute of added time give ahead of half-time...
29 Mar 19:52
43' Bafana Bafana attackers seem to be very tired as their decision making is very negative. Serero had mounts of space to create something for Rantie or Masango but opted to track the ball back and eventually losing the ball.

  • 62'

    Two great chances in quick succession for the away side! The first is put over Khune's post before the Bafana keeper does well to smother the ball away from Aboubakar. The Kaizer Chiefs keeper is livid with his defence as they lose concentration.

  • 40'

    Both teams wasteful in possession as the moment with sloppy play in the final third.

  • 36'

    Drama here as Hlatswayo and Aboubakar clash. The latter goes down theatrically after their scuffle. Both players are cautioned for their actions.

    The tempo has picked up here in Durban as both sides have good chances in quick succession - first Sali has a shot blocked from Eric Mathoho then Gabuza has a penalty claim waved away after beating Ondoa to the ball.

    CHANCE! Bafana have a great opportunity to take the lead as they break swiftly on the counter but Thulani Serero makes a hash of it as he squares the ball past the oncoming striker Tokelo Rantie.

    CHANCE! Hlatswayo misplaces his pace and it's intercepted by Cameroon, the ball is squared for Vincent Aboubakar but Khune gathers it in the danger area.

  • 21'

    The game is being played at a very slow tempo at the moment as the physical Cameroon side keep Bafana in their own half.

  • 16'

    Missed chance by Cameroon as Edgar Sali has a snap shot - the shot goes wide past an outstretched Ithumeleng Khune and out for a goal-kick.

  • 13'

    CHANCE! Hlanti manages to dig out a cross that fellow full-back Thulaani Hlatswayo meets at the far post, his downward header is expertly saved by Ondoa for a corner.

  • 7'

    Limited clear-cut chances in the opening stage as both sides stroke the ball around the park. Bafana are enjoying more of the possession.

    Sifiso Hlanti surprisingly takes the free-kick and it's tipped over the bar by the Cameroon goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa.

    Bafana go on the attack immediately and they're awarded a free-kick after Andile Jali is fouled 25-yards from goal. Kekana stands over the ball.
