Bafana Bafana, Breaker of Egyptian Hearts, Out of AFCON 2019

South Africa's Bafana Bafana held on to their AFCON place by the skin of their teeth when they slipped through in the "best losers" category with 3 points. All bets were on Egypt to beat them but Bafana proved the naysayers wrong, and a 1-0 result saw the host nation unceremoniously bundled out of the tournament. Bafana Bafana could not maintain the winning momentum though, losing 2-1 to Nigeria's Super Eagles in a much-anticipated, tense outing in Cairo for a semi-final berth. Probably only the Egyptians are happy about that! Keep up to date with the latest AFCON action...
