Result: Botswana 0-2 Bafana Bafana
 
Date: 04 July 2017
 
Venue: Moruleng Stadium
 
Bafana Bafana advanced to the COSAFA Cup Plate final, after goals from Riyaad Norodien and Judas Moseamedi secured a 2-0 win over Botswana.
 
Botswana threatened early on and nearly went ahead after nine minutes when Tshireletso was played through on goal, however Bruce Bvuma produced a good save to dent striker.
 
Bafana, meanwhile, struggled in the opening exchanges, but started to settle after 15 minutes and enjoyed a good amount possession.
 
The hosts eventually broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute as Mohua Mokate teed up Riyaad Norodien, who rifled the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box.
 
Stuart Baxter's charges were in control for the rest of the first half, and nearly extended their lead just before the break, but Mokate fired a low effort inches wide of the upright.
 
The score remained 1-0 to the South Africans at the halftime break.
 
Baxter was forced into a change at the start of the second half, as the injured Norodien made way for Stellenbosch FC midfielder, Jamie Webber.
 
Cole Alexander was introduced in the 58th minute and nearly marked his arrival with a goal but Masule rushed off his line to deny the midfielder.
 
Bvuma then came to Bafana's rescue 10 minutes later, as he pulled off a superb finger-tip save to push Mathumo's powerful effort overt the crossbar
 
With just over 10 minutes remaining, Baxter was sent to the stands after something he said to the fourth official.
 
Botswana threw numbers forward in the closing stages as they pushed for an equaliser, but the Bafana defence stood firm.
 
However, Bafana sealed the win in stoppage time when an un-marked Judas Moseamedi calmly slotted into the far corner.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Botswana: Masule, Leinanyane, Gaolaolwe, Mosimanyana, Mathumo, Galenamotlhale, Legwaila, Seakanyeng, Maswena, Orebonye, Tshireletso
 
Bafana: Bvuma, Malepe, Booysen, Mvala, Mukumela, Masalesa, Cele (Alexander 68'), Maboe, Norodien (Webber 45'), Mokate (Moseamedi 86'), Sibiya.

Well done Norodien, I am sure Coach Kjell was very happy with the goal you scored. Bucs should use you more and go after Mosiamedi Judas and Nduduzo Sibiya, those two are on fire.
