  1. A deserved victory for the hosts. Bafana Bafana were more attacking, more fluent than against Cape Verde. In fact, this is their best game this year.Majoro looks hurt and Lama goes over to apologise. The players are applauding the Durban crowd for their support which was amazing to say the least.

  2. A deserved victory for the hosts. Bafana Bafana were more attacking, more fluent than against Cape Verde. In fact, this is their best game this year.

  3. 90

    Bafana Bafana win.

  4. 90

    Majoro is down after getting knocked by the keeper. The Kaizer Chiefs forward was chasing a long ball which Lama got to first. The goal scorer is being treated on the field and the mexican wave is in full swing.

  5. 90

    The fourth official shows that there will be three minutes added on, the vuvuzelas are louder, is that possible? The crowd is happy, Bafana Bafana are taking it easy and Angola look beaten, and are.

  6. 87

    Some handbags here and dramatic acting as an Angolan player goes down like Mayweather knocked him. The free kick is whipped in and Khune collects. He sees Majoro up front and releases him with an inch-perfect punt. Majoro is one on one with a defender, he sees the keeper off his line and lobs the ball which lands up on the roof the goal.

  7. 86

    It's end to end stuff here as Angola push forward forward looking to reduce the deficit and Bafana defending astutely, waiting to intercept and counter-attack. A bit rushed at the moment by the hosts.

  8. 84

    Manucho rises above two defenders to head towards goal, Khune dives to his left to make an easy save.

  9. 81

    Manyisa loses the ball and then wins it back, he spots Phala running in to the box and makes the pass, but he is flagged for offside which he was not.

  10. 80

    Yeye goes down from an aerial challenge by Djalma. Bafana are slowing the pace down and Angola are struggling to get forward now.

  11. 77

    Mphela has worked hard for Bafana and Gordon Igesund decides it's enough and brings on midfielder Oupa Manyisa.

  12. 75

    Time is running out for Angola who are seeing more of the ball. Khumalo brings down a striker just outside the box and this looks dangerous, free kick just 20 yards out. Gilberto takes it but it hits the wall. There's a collective sigh of relief from the crowd.

  13. 71

    The Angolan coach kicks the ball up front to the delight of the crowd. He seems frustrated. Majoro is troubling the Angolan defence, combining well with Mphela who is holding up the ball nicely. Majoro's attempt at goal goes wide.

  14. 67

    Angola are more urgent in their attack now but Manucho again shoots straight at Khune. They seem a bit frustrated, can Bafana get a third goal? Their confidence is as high as the vuvuzelas are loud.

  15. 62

    Angola have a good chance to score, it's two on two but the striker holds on to the ball too long and it's cleared. Majoro chases the long ball and takes on a defender, beats him with a sublime body swerve. Majoro is in the small box, Mphela and Parker are calling for it but he strikes, the ball goes through the keeper's legs. what a goal!!! what a substitution!!!

  16. 62

    Angola have a good chance to score, it's two on two but the striker holds on to the ball too long and it's cleared. Majoro chases the long ball and takes on a defender, beats him with a sublime body swerve.

  17. 61

    GOAL! South Africa 2-0 Angola! Lehlohonolo Majoro

  18. 58

    Rantie, who is the busiest of the strikers and giving Massunguna a headache, is taken off. The crowd don't like it but maybe Gordon Igesund does not want him to get hurt. Majoro on.

  19. 53

    Furman goes close with a shot from just outside the box. Mphela did well to hold the ball up in the 18-area and to set up Furman.

  20. 52

    Mateus goes flying down the right and sends in a low cross that Manucho hits straight at Khune. Tense moment there for Bafana.
