FULL-TIME: Bafana Bafana 6-0 Seychelles
13 Oct 16:53
You guessed it, Mokoena adds his name to the scoresheet following a cross from Hlanti ... 
13 Oct 16:53
13 Oct 16:47
87' Can South Africa get another goal?
13 Oct 16:47
85' Meanwhile, Furman has been replaced by Mokoena while Phiri gets a chance with Tau coming off
13 Oct 16:43
A perfectly weighted pass from Maboe is run onto by Ndlovu, who makes no mistake to put the ball beyond Barra. 
13 Oct 16:42
13 Oct 16:38
Mphahlele starts off the beautiful move as he sees Mothiba in space and the striker who pulls in a Seychelles defender and cleverly flicks the ball for Tau who chases it down and rounds the goalkeeper and finally gets his name on the scoresheet.
13 Oct 16:35
13 Oct 16:33
71' Modiba off, Ndlovu on
13 Oct 16:31
70' MODIBA! His strike is stopped by Barra ... Seychelles 'keeper has somehow kept the score respectable so far
13 Oct 16:30
67' A few changes on the horizon possibly ...
13 Oct 16:25

Shots at goal (on target)

Bafana Bafana - 20 (10)
Seychelles - 0 (0)

13 Oct 16:24

63' Possession: Bafana Bafana 72% - 28% Seychelles

13 Oct 16:21
59' A relatively short corner as Hlanti passes it towards Tau, who is in the penalty area but knocks it to the side and dummies the defender before he pulls the trigger only for Barra to put his gloves to the strikers effort.
13 Oct 16:18
54' TAU again with an opportunity but Barra palms it away. 
13 Oct 16:17
51' Maboe again dictating things pushing forward before he finds Rama who then squeezes a through ball towards Tau, who looks up and pulls the trigger and hits the upright before he is flagged offside ... replay shows that the striker was onside ...
13 Oct 16:15
50' THREE on target shots have been saved from Romeo Barra in the past five minutes. Bafana Bafana starting the second-half in good spirits.
13 Oct 16:09
45' Second-half is underway ...
13 Oct 15:52

*** Bafana Bafana 3-0 Seychelles *** 

Solid performance by South Africa. Seychelles struggling keep the ball and Baxter's charges using that to their advantage. Will we see more goals in the second stanza?

Hopefully ... #AFCON2019 

13 Oct 15:50
13 Oct 15:48
44' CHANCE! Tau has a chance to add his name to the score-sheet and finds the target only for the 'keeper to brush the effort away.
13 Oct 15:46
41' Khune is yet to make a save ...
13 Oct 15:44
40' Hlanti has been superb as well ...
13 Oct 15:44
39' Just an observation so far, Mothiba has been working well up front with Maboe and Tau while Mokotjo and Furman seem to have a great understanding. 
13 Oct 15:40
33' A bit of a quiet period now as Bafana Bafana gather themselves and Seychelles hold their breath
13 Oct 15:37
13 Oct 15:37
Maboe fights off the Seychelles defence and darts forward and before he is eventually stopped he puts in a beautiful through ball towards Mothiba, who then controls it, looks up and buries it into the top corner.
13 Oct 15:35
13 Oct 15:34
Hlatshwayo gets his name on the scoresheet with a header in the top right corner ...
13 Oct 15:33
13 Oct 15:33
OWN GOAL: A deep cross in the penalty area towards Hlatshwayo and the defender heads into the 18th area and Nigel Hoareau attempts to head it out for a corner but puts it into his own net.
13 Oct 15:26
13 Oct 15:25
20' CHANCE! Lebohang Maboe with a 30 metre strike and makes the goalkeeper Dingwell work. He punches it out for a corner kick
13 Oct 15:23
17' CHANCE! Hlanti with a point-perfect cross into the 18th area and Mothiba rises with space and hits it with venom but the goalkeeper is well-positioned and palms it away.
13 Oct 15:21
16' Seychelles sitting deep in their own half with Bafana Bafana seeing much more of the ball. No real threat from the visitors.
13 Oct 15:20

14' TAU! What a free-kick by the 24-year-old ... He steps up before Khune who ran from his goalpost to give the player advice on how to kick it. 

He steps up and hit it over 9-player wall and thrusts the crossbar beating the goalkeeper. 

13 Oct 15:18
12' Free-kick won in a dangerous area for Bafana Bafana ... 
13 Oct 15:17
8' CHANCE! Bafana work the ball well down the right before Modiba is found with a beautiful cross into the box by Rama and he attempts to head on target, but can't keep it low. 
13 Oct 15:14
6' Rain continues to pour down on the FNB surface making things rather difficult for South Africa and Seychelles. Hopefully by the 15th or 20th minute teams will become comfortable. 
13 Oct 15:12
4' Surprised that Baxter has kept his faith in Furman and Mphahlele as both players have under performed in South Africa's previous fixture (goalless draw against Libya)
13 Oct 15:09

2' The lanky Mothiba doing well in running behind the Seychelles defence along side the pace of Tau. 

Let's see if this is a partnership Baxter can rely on

13 Oct 15:05
1' First-half is underway ...
  • 90'

    Full time at the FNB Stadium and Bafana Bafana come away with a comfortable 6-0 victory. Seychelles rarely featured on an attacking front and sit bottom group E.

  • 90'

    GOAL! Bafana work the ball on the left flank before it's whipped in towards the near post where Mokoena meets it and he heads home, 6-0.

  • 86'

    Seychelles have been well and truly outplayed this afternoon with the hosts continuing to just pass the ball around with ease in the Seychelles half as Bafana continue to push forward for a sixth.

  • 84'

    Substitution for Bafana Bafana as Tau comes off to be replaced by Phiri for the final few minutes.

  • 81'

    GOAL! Bafana break forward in numbers before Ndlovu is played into the box by Maboe and, with just the keeper to beat, makes no mistake in finding the back of the net. 5-0.

  • 80'

    Just ten more minutes to go at the FNB Stadium as Bafana Bafana are well set to see off a comfortable victory which will see the hosts move to the top of group E.

  • 79'

    Substitution for Seychelles as Waye-Hive comes on to replace Nancy.

  • 77'

    Substitution for South Africa as Furman comes off to be replaced by Mokoena.

  • 76'

    Substitution for Seychelles as Laurence comes on to replace Esther.

  • 74'

    GOAL! Tau makes it 4 for Bafana. He plays a neat one-two with Mothiba to get one-on-one with the keeper and shows composure to take the ball around the goalkeeper before passing into an empty net. 4-0.

  • 71'

    Substitution for Bafana as Modiba comes off to be replaced by Ndlovu.

  • 70'

    CHANCE! Modiba does well to work space for a shot from inside of the box and it forces the keeper into a good save.

  • 66'

    It continues to be all Bafana in the last few minutes. It's been an impressive performance from the hosts as they've played the visitors off of the park today.

  • 62'

    CHANCE! Mothiba is played in on goal after Seychelles have the ball away cheaply at the back, but he's denied by a the keeper who came off of his line quickly.

  • 60'

    SHOT! A corner for the hosts is played short for Tau. He takes the ball in before turning and striking at goal from a tight angle, but it's comfortably saved by the keeper.

  • 57'

    CHANCE! Bafana play through the middle once again and the loose ball drops to Tau on the edge of the area. He has the goal at his mercy with just the keeper to beat, but he shoots well over the bar.

  • 53'

    WOODWORK! Bafana work the ball neatly in midfield before Tau is played into the box. He takes a touch before striking at goal, but Dingwall comes out quickly to get a touch which sees the ball strike the crossbar.

  • 49'

    It's more of the same in the second half as Bafana Bafana continue to dominate the ball. Stuart Baxter will be happy with the performance thus far as they look to see out the game.

  • 46'

    We're back underway at the FNB Stadium for the second half!

  • 45'

    Half time at the FNB Stadium and Bafana Bafana go into the break with a comfortable 3-0 lead after 3 goals in quick succession from Hlatshwayo, Maboe and a Nigel own goal. Seychelles are yet to get into the game and will need to regroup at half time.

  • 43'

    SHOT! Maboe is given space to line up a shot from the edge of the Seychelles area and does just that. His effort skims across the pitch, but it goes just wide of the bottom corner and goes out for a goal kick.

  • 39'

    SHOT! Hlanti delivers a ball in from the left which finds Modiba in the middle. He attempts to head at goal, but it lacks the power to trouble Dingwall and he makes a comfortable save.

  • 35'

    It continues to be one-sided with little for Khune to do so far in the game. Seychelles have managed to stop the flow of chances for the home side, but it could only be for the time being.

  • 31'

    Bafana Bafana are cruising at the FNB Stadium with Seychelles unable to respond. All of the pressure has come from the home side and it looks to be turning out to be a comfortable afternoon for Stuart Baxter's men.

  • 27'

    GOAL! Mothiba is found with a pass on the edge of the box by Maboe. He takes a touch to set up the shot with his right and makes no mistake in finding the top corner.

  • 25'

    GOAL! Bafana get forward once more as Modiba can deliver a corner into the box. He finds Hlatshwayo and he heads powerfully past Dingwall. 2-0.

  • 23'

    GOAL! Bafana take the lead after they worked the ball well down the left before crossing into the box only for Nigel to head into his own net.

  • 21'

    SHOT! Maboe has an effort from range which is powerfully struck and Dingwall has to produce a good save to push the ball over the bar.

  • 18'

    CLOSE! Mphahlele is nearly found at the far post with a driven ball across goal, but he just isn't able to get his head to the ball.

  • 15'

    WOODWORK! Bafana win a free kick on the edge of the area and Tau is the man to take. He whips the ball over the wall and has Dingwall beaten, but it strikes the crossbar.

  • 12'

    CLOSE! Percy Tau has a great chance with a header from just outside of the six-yard box after a brilliantly whipped ball in from the left, but his header goes just over.

  • 10'

    Seychelles work the ball forward and manage to win a succession of corners, but it eventually comes to nothing as Bafana can clear easily.

  • 7'

    CHANCE! Bafana work the ball well down the right before Modiba is found with a beautiful cross into the box. He attempts to head on target, but he can't keep it down as it goes harmlessly over the bar.

  • 4'

    Both sides have looked to get forward in the opening few minutes. Mothiba is nearly in on goal as he's found in the right side channel, but Dingwall comes out to intercept and clear.

  • 1'

    We're underway at the FNB Stadium!

  • 0'

    Percy Tau is back in South Africa to represent Bafana Bafana after moving abroad from Sundowns at the end of last season. He could prove to be key for the hosts as they look to unlock the Seychelles defence.

  • 0'

    Bafana Bafana will be looking for a win this afternoon as they continue their push for a place at the main event in Cameroon. Seychelles have lost their first two games so far and come into the game as underdogs.
