Bafana Bafana knocked out of Qatar World Cup qualifiers

Zimstar Sports

South Africa’s promising campaign in the Qatar FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers ended in disappointment in Cape Coast, Ghana Sunday night when they were beaten 1-0 by the hosts to finish second in the group although with the same number of points with the West Africans.

A spot kick converted in the first half by Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew was all the hosts needed to progress to the play off stages of the competition.

Bafana Bafana, going into the match with 13 points, were in a good spot to maintain their position as Group G leaders and only needed a draw to progress to the next round but all came to nought.

Attempts by South Africa to rescue their campaign through spirited periods of attack in the last stages of the match failed to yield the much-needed equaliser as Ghana defended resolutely.
