Bafana disappoint

HOSTS South Africa were held to a goalless draw by Cape Verde Islands in the opening game of the Africa Cup of Nations at the National Stadium last night.

Report by Supersport

Bafana held majority possession and territory, but were far from clinical with their finishing as they settled for a share of the points.

The late introduction of Lerato Chabangu injected some new energy into the game, but Gordon Igesund’s men could not find the final touch in front of goal.

The visitors also had their opportunities from a few good attempts, and both teams will be pleased not to have lost a nervy opening encounter.

Bafana’s first attempt came in the second minute when Siphiwe Tshabalala took a free kick from a dangerous position on the edge of the box towards the corner flag, but Bernard Parker’s effort sailed just wide.

Lehlohonolo Majoro was fouled in the 13th minute and Tshabalala again took the set-piece. This time the shot was fired straight at Cape Verde goalkeeper Josimar Dias.
