Giant Slayers South Africa Kill The Egyptian Dream

Thembinkosi Lorch’s late strike is all that the Bafana Bafana of South Africa needed to stun hosts Egypt and book a spot in the quarterfinals of this years Africa Cup of Nations.

Despite having a group stage campaign to forget, South Africa managed to contain the Pharoas with a disciplined and clinical display that saw them keep Mohamed Salah quiet and make the most of Lorch’s late opening.

Bafana Bafana only made it to the last 16 as one of the third best losers after they went down to Ivory Coast and Morocco in the Group Stages.

South Africa will now face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the Quarterfinals after they picked a 3-2 win over Cameroon in a 5 goal thriller.
