Ratings:

Itumeleng Khune: 7/10
 
Khune was at his best on the day, as he kept Bafana in the match with crucial saves, especially in the first half.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 5/10
 
Mphahlele struggled at times defensively, with most of Libya's attacks coming down his flank. He was also guilty giving the ball away a few times.
 
Thulani Hlatshwayo: 7/10
 
Hlatshwayo was solid at the back and did well to nullify the aerial threat of Rabia Alshadi throughout the match.
 
Buhle Mkhwanazi: 6/10
 
Mkhwanazi looked a little shaky at times, but he did work well with Hlatshwayo, just as they do for Bidvest Wits.
 
Sifiso Hlanti: 7/10
 
Hlanti had a good game defensively and provided an option going forward, although his crossing was not up to par on the day.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 5/10
 
Vilakazi went missing for Bafana, especially in the final third. He did play in a deeper role, but he had no influence on the game at all.
 
Kamohelo Mokotjo: 5/10
 
Not the best of games for Mokotjo. He was sloppy in possession in the first half and had no influence on the game going forward.
 
Dean Furman: 7/10
 
Furman was head and shoulders above the rest in terms of performance. He was the engine in the middle of the park as the likes of Vilakazi and Mokotjo disappointed.
 
Vincent Pule: 6/10
 
Debutant Pule was lively in the first stanza, bravely taking players on every opportunity, but he was substituted just after halftime.
 
Percy Tau: 6.5/10
 
Tau was stifled in the first half as a half-nine in the centre of attack, but he came to life in the second stanza when he was pushed wide.
 
Keagan Dolly: 6.5/10
 
Dolly kept things simple with one-touch football and showed maturity tracking back to mark, but his final ball could have been better at times.
 
Substitutes:
 
Bradley Grobler: 5/10
 
Grobler was introduced at the start of the second half, but did not get the services in the box.
 
Aubrey Modiba: 5/10
 
Modiba gave Bafana the much needed width in the second stanza on the left wing, but was often overlooked by teammates.
