Bafana Player Ratings v Algeria

Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Bafana Bafana players, following their 3-1 loss to Algeria in their opening Afcon Group C clash.
 
Here are the ratings:
 
Darren Keet: 5
 
Not the best of nights between the sticks for Keet, made some key saves but should have done better with Algeria's final two goals.
 
Anele Ngcongca: 6
 
Started off well in the first but had to move into the center of the defence following Rivaldo Coetzee's injury.
 
Thabo Matlaba: 6
 
Started off a little nervous and was targeted by Sofiane Feghouli, but got stronger as the game went on.
 
Thulani Hlatshwayo: 6
 
Despite scoring an unfortunate own goal, Hlatshwayo was solid defensively
 
Rivaldo Coetzee: NA
 
Unfortunately Went off injured in the first half.
 
Dean Furman: 6
 
Came close to opening the scoring in the first half and was solid in the midfield.
 
Andile Jali: 6
 
Another solid showing from Jali alongside Furman and certainly held his own against the likes of Nabil Bentaleb and Medhi Lacen.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 6
 
Started off slowly and was in-effective on the flank but had a bigger influence on the game when he drifted into the center, but should have done a lot better to stop  Faouzi Ghoulam from scoring the second goal.
 
Thusa Phala: 6
 
Went missing in the first half and hardly touched the ball, but he got more involved in the second and scored the opening goal.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 6
 
A quiet game for the Bafana midfielder, failed to influence the game in the first half, had a bit more joy in the second half though.
 
Tokelo Rantie: 5
 
A frustrating night for Rantie, missed a penalty that could have given Bafana a two-goal advantage and missed a couple more chances.
 
Substitutes:
 
Siyabonga Nhlapho: 5
 
Replaced the injured Coetzee, failed to provide any attacking outlet down the flank and did not provide Manyisa with cover for Algeria's second goal.
 
Bongani Ndulula: NA
 
Was not on the field long enough to receive a rating.
 
Mandla Masango: NA
 
Was not on the field long enough to receive a rating.
