Goals from Percy Tau and Hlompho Kekana guided the Brazilians to a 2-1 win over Cape Town City on Sunday afternoon.

“It was very important not to go to extra time because it would have spoiled the whole week we have eight games in 28 days so we have to be smart and not be emotional,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the match.

“I think we did well we missed a lot of chances in the first half. We hit the post twice. We have experienced Bafana players. They managed the game well. Thapelo [Morena] struggled a little bit with [Bradley] Ralani. He’s a good player. I have to give Ralani credit. We have experience to play this game we know when it’s the last 15 to ten minutes how to organise and let it roll and roll.

“They were more on the ball and we were more effective. We could have scored three goals in the first half. They have a very good team, I’m not surprised this team beat Orlando Pirates, they beat Wits they’re a very good team.

“We put a little of experience in this game and shut down Robyn Johannes and let [Tariq] Fielies have the ball because Johannes is their playmaker. He passes well [from the back].

“Gaston [Sirino] struggled a little bit defensively but he was dangerous in attack sometimes you can’t have the cake and eat it. It was a good experience.”
