Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the ratings from the Bafana players.

Ratings:

Wayne Sandilands: 5/10
 
Sandilands could have done better for the first goal, but was helpless for second. He had a quiet night overall.
 
Morgan Gould: 6.5/10
 
The veteran defender was solid at the back on his return to the national. He made clean tackles, showing his experience. 
 
Thulani Hlatshwayo: 6/10
 
Hlatshwayo communicated well with Gould at times and did well to deny the visitors in the box, 
 
Sifiso Hlanti: 5/10
 
Hlanti struggled at times defensively, while his crossing was not his usual best.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 6.5/10
 
Mphahlele had a decent game, especially in the first half. He hardly put any foot wrong, timing his overlapping runs perfectly, his only fault was his wayward crossing.
 
Dean Furman: 6/10
 
Furman made a couple good challenged in the first half and added a bit of steel to the midfield.
 
Hlompho Kekana: 6/10
 
Kekana worked tirelessly in midfield. His ball-winning skills were terrific and he threatened the goals with pin-point set-pieces. 
 
Themba Zwane: 5/10
 
Zwane did not have the best of games by his standards. He had his moments with good touches of the ball but hardly threatened in the final third.
 
Keagan Dolly: 5/10
 
Dolly linked up well with Zwane on a couple occassions, but he did not a major impact in the final third.
 
Bradley Grobler: 5/10
 
Grobler squandered some good opportunities to get into the score-sheet. He was replaced midway through the second half.
 
Tokelo Rantie: 6/10
 
Rantie worked hard as usual, but he squandered a good chance in the first half. He was more threatening in the second half.
 
Substitutions:
 
Lebohang Manyama: 5/10
 
Manyama only had about half-an-hour to change the game for Bafana. He showed a bit of energy but not enough impact in the game.
 
Andile Jali: 6/10
 
Jali scored the consolation goal in stoppage time, minutes after coming on and was a real injection of energy into the game.
 
Percy Tau: NA
 
Did not play enough minutes to be rated.

Morgon gould for me did not perform well he was late in tackles gave the opposition space to punish as his also slow in speed that really cost us in the second goal mphahlele played well his performance was moderate hlanti did not come to the party the game was too big for him hlatshwayo played well he leaded the team well furman played well but his presence was not​ needed in this game , kekana I saw the vision in his goal attempts , followed the coaches instructions ,zwane's performance was blur given his qualities ,rantie did well clasmsy in attack at times, grobler also did well better than his attacking partner, Erasmus ,tau ,jali,serero could have produced a better result​ if they were used in the match

SAFA is a Joke, If you think Pitso was a bad coach for Bafana, Gordon was a bad coach for Bafana, Mashaba was a bad coach for Bafana or Baxter is a bad coach then you don’t understand football, SAFA should not have fired Mashaba at that crucial stage of the world cup qualifiers and bring on a new coach in the form of Baxter, they should have allowed him to finish what he started, SAFA is making coaching Bafana Bafana the most difficult job in the world, if I was Gavin Hunt I was not going to wish to be a Bafana Bafana coach under the current SAFA leadership, I feel sorry for poor Baxter, you should have seen his post-match interview with Marawa, when a new coach comes in to the team it doesn’t matter how good he is, he must first learn the players in order to come with best combinations and the players must learn his philosophy and it doesn’t need Sir Alex Ferguson to understand that. There was no time for both Baxter and Bafana to do that, you might go through the process while getting results like what Mashaba did when qualifying Bafana for 2015 AFCON and if that happens then you are lucky, in this case both Baxter and Bafana have the mixture of both, they were lucky to beat Nigeria and unlucky to lose to Cape Verde. Unfortunately, you cannot always depend in luck in football, you must work hard and understand how to run it, when to fire the coach and get the new one, which decision to make and when to make it, identify problem areas and come up with solutions. I think is high time that SAFA is run by former footballers, current leaders are letting the country down, Uther Zwane/Lucky Lekgwathi can do a better job than Danny Jordan. We need people who understand the challenges our country’s football is facing and who can come up with solutions than complaining about it, South Africans love football and they deserve better. What is happening between the PSL and SAFA, having domestic fixture during (CHAN & COSAFA) the tournaments that we must use to build a formidable Bafana and give our PSL players international exposure is a very big setback for SA football that have more domestic than oversea players, if the PSL is the best league with the highest standard in Africa, then let’s get best PSL players to compete for COSAFA & CHAN and beat our opponents with the average of 7 goals and build their confidence and see if it will not improve our chances of making it to big tournaments like AFCON and FIFA world cup. Doctor Khumalo, Mark Fish, Neil Tovey and Linda Buthelezi’s confidence was not build the day they beat Cameroon 3 nil or the day they beat Ghana 3 nil or the day they beat Tunisia 2 nil, it was built by winning Simba four nations. We need football leaders who can do something about it and come up with solutions, the problem has been there for too long and complaining about it is not helping us, we need solutions. If SAFA is serious about getting Bafana Bafana right, they will stop firing good coaches for stupid reasons, sort out the mess between them and the PSL (In availability of players for CHAN and COSAFA due to fixtures) and focus in development so that it doesn’t take us 30 years to replace retired goal poacher like Benni McCarthy and best defenders like Lucas Radebe. It is unfortunate that even today we are still struggling to get our football Identity, which formation best suit our players, what to expect from Bafana Bafana on the day of the game, I don’t think it should take 50 years, 10 years is enough, today we beat Mexico, tomorrow we lose to Zambia, today we beat Spain tomorrow we lose to Mauritania, today we beat Nigeria, tomorrow we lose to Cape Verde, today our players are performing with their tails high(with full of confidence), tomorrow we play like headless chickens, all because of lack of leadership. SAFA if you think you are doing a very good job the you must think again, you are doing a very good job in destroying our football.

SAFA, whyyou take the match to Durban?, we should have punished Cape Verde if this match was routed to Mbombela where the altitude was going to affect their rythm, Durban favoured them because they're from the coast? i wonder who is doing Risk Assessment within SAFA?

@ARGENTINA, "Russia is where SA is going"???....not as participants, maybe as tourists or spectators. But, I know, by the time the World Cup starts, you would have changed your user name or blogging under your old user name. I can deduce from the tone of your comments that you are an old black and gold idiot disguising under a fake username.

@Vongani! My concern with these useless Bafana Bafana camps is that my Boys mix with below average players from other clubs and in most cases National Team Coaches' philosophical approach to the game is contrary to their Coach 's philosophy, this, in a way negatively affect their performance when reporting for club duties. That is my only concern.
