Bafana Player Ratings v Cameroon
Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Bafana Bafana players, following their 1-1 draw with Cameroon.
Here are the ratings:
Brilliant Khuzwayo: 6
Could have a done a bit better with Vincent Aboubacar's free-kick, but looked more assured in the second half.
Rivaldo Coetzee: 6
Continues to impress in the Bafana backline, looked comfortable on the ball.
Thulani Hlatshwayo: 6
Solid performance from the Bidvest Wits defender, winning ariel duels against the powerful and strong Cameroon attack.
Thabo Matlaba: 7
Did not see much of him bombing down the wing in the first half, but he had more joy in the second half and forced a good save from Fabrice Ondoa.
Anele Ngcongca: 6
A solid showing down the right flank for Ngcongca, did not get as forward as much as he would like to though.
Dean Furman: 6
Struggled to get going in the first half but improved as the second half went on.
Andile Jali: 6
Much like Furman, Jali didn't get going in the first half but had more of an influence in the second half.
Oupa Manyisa: 6
A quiet first half for Manyisa, but was more effective when in cutting from the left flank and he went close with a free-kick as well.
Themba Zwane: 6
Did not have the same impact as he did against Zambia.
Tokelo Rantie: 7
Much like the rest of the attack, Rantie was quiet in the first half but sprung into life in the second stanza, troubling the Cameroon defence with his pace.
Bernard Parker: 6
Rewarded with a start for his impressive showing against Zambia and should have opened the scoring before the halftime.
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 7
Another inspired substitution by Shakes Mashaba, helped Bafana retain more possession and scored a wonderful equaliser.
Thuso Phala: 6
A big impact from the winger once again when introduced in the second half, troubled the opposition with his pace and skill.
Mandla Masango: 6
A much needed injection of pace down the flanks, did well when coming on.
