Four Nations 

Result: South Africa 1-1 Angola (SA won 6-5 on penalties)

Date: 21 March 2018

Venue: Levy Mwanawasa Stadium

Bafana Bafana advanced to the final of the Four Nations tournament after beating Angola 6-5 on penalties on Wednesday afternoon.

Young players such as Lebogang Mothiba, Reeve Frosler and Phakamani Mahlambi were handed starts by Stuart Baxter.

After a quiet opening, Bafana slowly got into the game and they nearly went ahead after 17 minutes but Aubrey Modiba's header was saved by Angola goalkeeper Lando Mavanga.

Darren Keet, who was handed the start by Baxter, was called into action in the 28th minute as he did well to keep out a long range strike by Djalma Campos.

Three minutes later, the Angolans took the lead as Campos took advantage of a casual pass from Buhle Mkhwanazi before slotting past Keet.

Baxter's charges failed to carve out another clear cut chance in the remaining stages of the half and went into the break behind.

Bafana managed to level matters five minutes into the second half courtesy of cheeky flick from Mothiba.

Baxter opted for a change on 70 minutes with Ryan Moon replacing Mahlambi, while Siphesihle Ndlovu came on for Modiba.

Moon nearly made the perfect impact after 83 minutes but his header sailed just wide of the upright following a corner from Themba Zwane.

Neither side could find a winning goal in the closing, forcing the match into a shoot-out, where Bafana triumphed 6-5 to advance to the final.

Here's how they lined up:
Bafana: Bafana: Keet, Frosler, Madisha, Mkhwanazi, Hlanti, Furman, Zwane, Zungu (Vilakazi 86'), Modiba (Ndlovu 72'), Mahlambi (Moon 70'), Mothiba.
Angola: Lando, Daniel, Bartolomeu Quissanga, Gaspar, Carneiro, Cafumana, Carmo, Estevao, Campos, Afonso, Felix .

Tired old players. Forget them these ones. Only nations with players that ply their trade in top-notch leagues will always please their fellow citizens. We are doomed soccerwise.
