Farai Dziva|Newly appointed Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki got off to a winning start after his charges defeated the Eagles of Mali 2-1 in the Nelson Mandela Challenge in Port Elizabeth today.
The 50-year-old coach fielded a strong team which included Thulani Serero, Dean Furman, Thembinkosi Lorch and Bradley Grobler. Club Brugge’s Percy Tau was sidelined through injury.
Themba Zwane and Kermit Erasmus’ first half goals were all that Bafana Bafana needed to sail past Mali in front of a respectable crowd at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
The West Africans got their goal from Sekou Koita in the 74th minute.
