Bafana Bafana’s record in North Africa


Tokelo Rantie then got the only goal as they drew 1-1 with Morocco in a friendly in 2013.

Their victories were both in friendly games‚ beating Tunisia 2-0 in 2004 as Benni McCarthy and Tyren Arendse‚ on debut‚ scored the goals.

They also claimed a 2-1 victory over Egypt in a warm-up game ahead of the 2006 Afcon finals finals‚ but went on to lose all three matches at the tournament without scoring a goal.

They have also suffered three losses down the years‚ to Tunisia in 2003‚ and against Egypt in that same year and 2006.

Bafana held their first training session on Monday and coach Stuart Baxter was pleased with the commitment and energy shown by the players.

“We had a good session. We worked on some tactics during our 90-minute session‚ and I am impressed with how the players have responded,” said Baxter.

“They are all looking very sharp and ready to compete for a place in the first eleven.

“We have a great squad here and I believe that if we can work as a unit‚ have tactical discipline and enjoy the match against Libya‚ we will come away with the much need result‚” said Baxter.
