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.

@The Ghost himself OK maybe I don't, but the boy gave his A game and for the fact that he can also attack when needed, ill put him first against Katsande.

I give Meyiwa 8/10. The boy owned the Middlefield, I didn't know he can put hard tackles but he did exceptionally well to protect our defence, he gave Makaringe the freedom to run with the balls whiles he is doing all the dirty wok.
