The Best & Worst Of Bafana Vs Nigeria

Bafana Bafana's search for their second ever win over Nigeria continued, after the two sides played out to a 1-1 draw on Sunday, but who were the best and worst performers on the day?

Shakes Mashaba's boys started the match like a house on fire, as the likes of Thulani Serero and Andile Jali were putting on a show for the Bafana faithful.

However, as always Bafana were made to pay for their missed opportunities, as Ahmed Musa unleashed a sublime strike to give the Super Eagles the lead in the 84th minute.

Bafana did give us something to shout about, as the impressive Bongani Zungu poked home from close range to secure a draw with the final kick of the game.

The Three Who Impressed:

Eric Mathoho - The central defender was immense in the heart of the defence and furstrated the Nigerian attack for large parts.

Bongani Zungu - The Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder was superb in the middle of the park and certainly justified his selection in the starting line-up.

Thulani Serero - Drafted back into the side and rightfully so, caused all sorts of problems in the final third and entertained the crowd with a few silky touches.

The Three Who Disappointed:

Sibusiso Vilakazi - Not the best of performances from our number 10 and should have been taken off earlier.

Lehlohonolo Majoro - Made no impact when he came on to replace in the second half, maybe Mashaba's comments are still in the back of his mind.

Thabo Matlaba - Perhaps not the usual lively performance we are use to seeing from the defender, he got injured in the second half but was hardly a threat going forward when he was on the pitch.

Who were your best and worst performers on the night?
