Bafana Bafana snatched a late 1-0 victory over Ghana, courtesy of a Bongokuhle Hlongwane strike, which took the South Africans top of Group G in Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying.
After a slow start, Hugo Broos’ team began to find their rhythm and had the ball in the back of the net when Percy Tau expertly guided his header in. The linesman, however, raised his flag and the referee chalked off the goal for offside, despite replays showing that Tau was indeed onside.
Bafana, though, didn’t give up and after knocking on the door the entire game they eventually grabbed the lead in the 83rd minute as Hlongwane was on hand to deflect a cross into the back of the net for an important three points.
