DURBAN – Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter was left impressed, but his team’s never-say-die attitude against Paraguay and Nigeria is the same fighting spirit they will need when they visit Libya in a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in March next year.
Bafana showed resilience coming back from a goal down to snatch a draw at the death against Paraguay at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday, as they shared the Nelson Mandela Challenge with the South Americans.
Percy Tau was the hero for Bafana with his last-gasp equaliser in referee’s optional time. Bafana also came back from behind to earn a point against Nigeria this past weekend in a crunch 2019 Afcon qualifier at FNB Stadium.
Baxter was left with hope after the two matches that they can go away and get the required result against Libya.
They need to get a point in order to book a place to Afcon in Cameroon next year.
