Bafana shocked the continent after defeating hosts Egypt at a packed Cairo International Stadium on Saturday evening to secure a spot in the quarter-finals.

The South Africans did receive some criticism for the way they played in the group stages, where they only registered one goal and one victory.

However, Baxter felt the performance in Cairo was one of the tournament has seen so far.

"It's probably one of the best performances at Afcon," Baxter told reporters.

"Not only the result, but it also one of the best performances that you are going to see. For me, the players gave a tactical masterclass.
 
"For me, it's another day at the office, it doesn't change anything for me, once the tournament is finished I'll decided what I'm going to do."
 
Bafana will lock horns with Nigeria in the quarter-finals on Wednesday evening.
