Bafana down Mali to claim Nelson Mandela Challenge title


Bafana Bafana defeated Mali to lift the Nelson Mandela Challenge title in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.

South Africa won 2-1 after leading 2-0 at half-time.

New head coach Molefi Ntseki says while it was a team effort, it felt special winning his first match in charge of Bafana Bafana.

This friendly was of significant importance to South Africa, as they prepare for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Ghana, which take place in November.
