Bruce Bvuma: 7/10
Bvuma started off shaky, but was impressive for the rest of game and pulled off a couple super saves.
Tercious Malepe: 6.5/10
Malepe put in a solid display at left-back and frustrated his opposing number for most of the game.
Mario Booysen: 7/10
Just as he did against Tanzania, Booysen put in a solid display in the heart of the Bafana defence.
Mothobi Mvala: 7/10
Replaced Lorenzo Gordinho in the line-up, and he put in an impressive showing alongside Booysen, as they stopped Botswana from creating any chances in the box.
Thendo Mukumela: 6.5/10
Much like Malepe, Mukumela put in a solid showing down the right flank. He added numbers going forward and was solid defensively.
Lehlogonolo Masalesa: 6.5/10
Anchored the midfield brilliantly, which allowed the likes of Sibaya and Maboe to have more freedom.
Thabo Cele: 6.5/10
Looked very comfortable on the ball and combined well with the likes of Sibiya and Maboe, but was replaced after 60 minutes.
Lebogang Maboe: 7/10
Handed a start by Baxter, and he did not disappointed. His combination play with Mokate and Sibiya was impressive on the day. He also scooped up the Man of the Match award.
Riyaad Norodien: 6.5/10
Had a very lively opening five minutes, which he capped off with a fine goal but he was replaced at the start of the second half due to injury.
Mohau Mokate: 6.5/10
Mokate was very impressive on the day. He combined well with the other attackers, while he also laid on the pass for Norodien's goal.
Nduduzo Sibiya: 7/10
His pace and skill was a joy to watch on the day. He was a threat throughout the game and played a role in the opening goal.
Jamie Webber: 6/10
Provided good energy for the second half and had a couple good touches in the opposing half.
Cole Alexander: 6/10
Added a bit more steel and power to the midfield, he also did well to disrupt Botswana's attacks on a couple occasions.
Judas Moseamedi: NA
Was only introduced in the 86th minute, but did score Bafana's second goal in stoppage time.

Well done Bvuma. That tip over the cross bar and the stopped shot. Clearly on the footsteps Brian and Itu. Brilliant must pull up his socks.
