Congo 0 – 2 South Africa: Bafana Boost 2015 AFCON Chances

Congo 0 – 2 South Africa: Bafana Boost 2015 AFCON Chances

Bongane Ndulula scored his second international goal in just three appearances to help South Africa to a crucial 2-0 victory over Congo-Brazzaville in a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Pointe Noire on Saturday afternoon.

Ndulula drew first blood early in the second half, before Tokelo Rantie helped himself to his fifth international career goal to put the result beyond doubt and send Bafana Bafana top of group A.

As the qualification campaign reached the halfway stage, Bafana grabbed three priceless points in a week where talk of a win for South Africa focused on the unlikelihood in the ever-hostile coastal city of Pointe Noire.

Seven points from three tough encounters gives South Africa a superb start and a solid footing as the team begin their trip back home, where Polokwane will host the return fixture against Congo next week.
