Bafana began their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over the Super Eagles thanks to goals from Tokelo Rantie and Percy Tau.

However, the Portugal-based midfielder showered praise on Erick Mathoho, Tebogo Langerman, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and captain Thulani Hlatshwayo.

“They were disciplined and outstanding. That is what wins your away games; a solid defence especially in the opening minutes. Our guys never gave anything away," Zungu told SAFA's official website.

“But Keagan Dolly and Dean also helped mop up the defence when they needed numbers.”

The former Mamelodi Sudnowns midfielder also praised Bafana's communication after the win in Uyo.

“We were up against a good team, Nigeria has some quality stars but we played to instructions, communicated with each other and the outcome was there for all to see," he added.

“We were compact in the opening 20 minutes but once we realised we can open them up, we went for the jugular and boy."
