#TBT – Remember When Bartlett Ran Riot At Malawi's Defence?

It is Thursday again, and Supporters Club throws back. Today, we take you down memory lane back to second leg of the 1996 FIFA World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Malawi.

The game took place on this day (15 June 1996) in front of 30 000 spectators at FNB Stadium. Bafana Bafana needed a win to top their group. Having won the first leg 1-0 in Malawi, SA went into this one oozing with confidence.

It took Bafana only four minutes to find the back of the net when Shaun Bartlett scored the first goal. The Malawians couldn't provide answers to SA's questions, and 10 minutes later, Bafana were awarded a penalty. Shoes Moshoeu stepped up to take it, but hit the upright.

Mark Fish grabbed Bafana's second in the 38th minute, and the team continued to put the Malawians under siege and three minutes before half-time, Bartlett scored the third goal and his second of the game.

Malawi tried to get a goal of their own in the second half but were shut out by Bafana's solid defence.

Fish, who was to jet off to Italy the following day after agreeing a deal with Lazio FC, was named the Man of the Match for his brilliant display on the day. The final score read South Africa 3-0 Malawi, and Bafana were top of their group going into the last game against Congo.

What memories do you have of that match?
