Bafana Player Ratings v Mauritania

Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Bafana Bafana players, following their 3-1 loss to Mauritania.
 
Bafana Bafana Ratings:
 
Itumeleng Khune: 5
 
Was hardly tested throughout the 90 minutes, but was at fault for the first goal with a shocking blunder, although he was helpless with the other two goals.
 
Anele Ngcongca: 6
 
The hosts hardly attacked down Ngcongca's flank throughout the game, but could have used his experience to help others, while he did pick up an assist.
 
Siyabonga Zulu: 4.5
 
Proved to be a Bafana debut to forget for Zulu, struggled to contain Diakhite down the flank and he was sent for an early shower after being shown a straight red card for a professional foul.
 
Rivaldo Coetzee: 6
 
Not the best of evenings for the young defender, his in-experience showed with the final two goals. Failing to cover Mathoho for the first goal and he was easily beaten for the third goal.
 
Eric Mathoho: 6
 
Much like his defensive partner, really struggled to deal with Mauritania attack, was easily beaten for the second and third goal.
 
Dean Furman: 5.5
 
Hardly contributed in the attack going forward, lost out on a few individual duels and couldn't keep up with the pace of the game.
 
Andile Jali: 6
 
Managed to work up and down the pitch, but he was let down by his wayward passing throughout the game, which disrupted Bafana's play going forward.
 
Thulani Serero: 6
 
Deployed on the left and was left isolated on the flank, he was closed down whenever he was possession of the ball, although he did go missing in the second half.
 
Mandla Masango: 6
 
Failed to provide a threat down right the flank, hardly had a go at the opposing full-back and he was non-existent in the second half.
 
Thamsanqa Gabuza: 6.5
 
Gabuza provided the nation with the only bright moment of the match, with his towering header in the 68th minute, but other than the goal, he was left to work tirelessly, while he had no service to work with.
 
Tokelo Rantie: 6
 
Certainly looked short of match fitness, as he failed to trouble the Mauritania defence and he was eventually replaced in the 52nd minute.
 
Substitutes:
 
Mzikayise Mashaba: 6
 
Brought on in the 52nd minute, after Zulu was sent off, but he managed to hold his own at left-back against the skillful Diakhite.
 
Bongani Zungu: 6
 
His impact was immediate, he wasted a glorious chance in the 64th minute by blazing an effort over from inside the area, although he played a key role in the equalising goal.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi: NA
 
Mashaba introduced the midfielder after the home side had scored their third goal and he was left with just over 10 minutes to perform.
