The way things were going against Namibia, it looked like Bafana Bafana were again going to fail to score any goals at the Africa Cup of Nations.
More than an hour had passed at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, and it was actually the Brave Warriors who had been the better team up to that point.
Namibia had an effort cleared off the line by Bafana captain Thulani Hlatshwayo, while the likes of Percy Tau and Lebo Mothiba battled to finish off a few half-chances.
It seemed as if Bafana were going to draw a blank, just like they did in the 1-0 defeat to the Ivory Coast on Monday.
But up stepped Tau. The former Mamelodi Sundowns star whipped in a corner from the left, and the unlikely figure of Bongani Zungu was unmarked in the box.
