The new Bafana Bafana technical team will be pleased with the second performance of their team against Uganda in an international friendly match on Thursday evening.

After a disappointing first half, Bafana Bafana came back strong in the last 45 minutes to beat a spirited Uganda 3-2 at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Both countries were using the match as part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers starting in September.

Bafana Bafana who are in a rebuilding phase had 8 debutants in their starting lineup with captain Ronwen Williams, Innocent Maela and Lebohang Maboe – the only three players with previous international experience.

Earlier in the week, the first assistant coach, Cedormir Janevski, tested positive for COVID-19. The Macedonian mentor becomes the seventh member of the team to be released from his duties due to health concerns.

Team doctor, Tshepo Molobi, gave a detailed breakdown of Janevski’s condition after receiving the second round of test results of the entire team.
