Darren Keet – 6/10
Made a couple errors, but made a few saves in the first half to redeem himself.
Ramahlwe Mphahlele – 5/10
‘Rama’ was struggling with the pace of the wingers on the right side, although he put in a couple decent crosses in the first half.
Motjeka Madisha – 4/10
Not the best of showings from Madisha as he gave possession away too often, one of his misplaced passes resulted in Paraguay's goal in the first half. He was replaced at halftime.
Thulani Hlatshwayo –5/10
Struggle with the presence of the physically build strikers and was caught out of possession at times.
Innocent Maela -6/10
Deputising for Hlanti, Maela defended well at times, but didn’t get forward as he usually does for Orlando Pirates.
Teboho Mokoena – 6.5/10
For his full debut, Mokoena managed to hold his own in the middle of the park and showed confidence on the ball.
Tiyani Mabunda- 6/10
Unlike his performance on Saturday, Mabunda was less of an influence going forward but he went quietly about his business defensively.
Lebogang Maboe- 5/10
Didn’t track back enough and was never in the game, especially in the first half.
Vincent Pule – 5/10
Left frustrated much of the game, with poor decision-making and too many touches on the ball coupled with wayward finishing.
Percy Tau -6/10
Buzzed from the first minute, but fluctuated from time to time, although he was rewarded with a goal late in the half.
Lebogang Mothiba – 4/10
Never got on the ball and hardly showed any authority inside the box, before he was replaced at halftime.
Ronwen Williams – 6/10
Came on for Keet at the start of second half, and made a few decent saves though wasn’t troubled too much as his predecessor.
Buhle Mkhwanazi – 5/10
Part of a number of halftime changes, Mkhwanazi partnered his club mate and brought some stability to the backline.
Dino Ndlovu -4/10
Replaced Mothiba in the second half, but was left an isolated figure much of the game and didn’t make much an impact
Thulani Serero – 6/10
Provided the missing link in attack and his pass for the equaliser was just but one his contributions.
