RATINGS:
 
Reyaad Pieterse: 7/10
 
Pieterse was hardly troubled throughout the clash, although he was helpless to keep out Deon Hotto's second-half volley.
 
Siyanda Xulu: 7.5/10
 
Xulu put in a solid showing in the heart of the defence, while he capped off his performance with a goal in the second half.
 
Motjeka Madisha: 7/10
 
Madisha showed good communication with Xulu throughout and he also played a key role in Bafana's fourth goal.
 
Siyabonga Ngezana: 7/10
 
Ngezana, who made his debut, complemented Madisha and Xulu in a three-man central defence that was very solid.
 
Aubrey Modiba: 7.5/10
 
Modiba played well on the wing and combined to good effect with Gift Links, and also won and converted the penalty in the first half.
 
Fortune Makaringe: 7/10
 
Makaringe was enterprising going forward in the middle of the park and created a lot of chances with his pace and trickery.
 
Wiseman Meyiwa: 6/10
 
Meyiwa didn't contribute that much going forward, but he was not shy to put in a tackle and did well to protect the back four.
 
Siphesihle Ndlovu: 7.5/10
 
Like his Maritzburg United team-mates in the squad, he continued his club form into the national team. He played a key role with some of the transitions and was a livewire throughout.
 
Gift Links: 7.5/10
 
Links had an eye-catching performance down the left. His pace and finely tuned left foot was a joy to watch as he played a key role in Bafana's third goal.
 
Lebohang Maboe: 9/10
 
After a quiet game on Sunday, Maboe gave a five-star performance by grabbing a brace on the night with two composed finishes in the box.
 
Ryan Moon: 7/10
 
Despite not getting on the scoresheet, Moon was still a handful for the Namibian defence throughout the clash. He also bagged the assist for Maboe's first goal with a neat knock-on.
 
Substitutions:
 
Jamie Webber: 6/10
 
Webber had 20 minutes to make a contribution to the team that was already cruising but showed little invention.
 
Paseka Mako: NA
 
Mako did not have much to do as he only played the final 13 minutes of the second half while Bafana were already 4-1 up.
 
Lyle Foster: NA
 
Foster showed glimpses of goal threats shortly after coming on but did not have enough minutes to make a lasting impression.
