AmaZulu striker Bongani Ndulula made his debut for Bafana Bafana on Friday night and scored the final goal in a 3-0 win away to Sudan.
The result sees South Africa move to the top of the Group A standings in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with Nigeria and Congo set to clash on Saturday.
The match was new coach Shakes Mashaba’s first in charge in his second tenure, and he opted for a youthful line-up which was very much attack-minded.
Ndulula and Ajax Cape Town’s Keagan Dolly were handed debuts and featured in an attack that also included Tokelo Rantie and in-form Mandla Masango.
Ndulula out in a solid shift in attack and often found himself providing dangerous crosses from the right flank.
However, it was the work of Oupa Manyisa down the left that paved the way for Ndulula’s big moment, with the Orlando Pirates midfielder skinning Sudan’s right-back before providing a perfect cross for the Usuthu striker to find the back of the net and wrap up a 3-0 win.
Earlier in the game, second half substitute Sibusiso Vilakazi had scored two goals to put Bafana Bafana in charge of the game after a goalless first half.Share
