Bafana good enough for last eight



Former Nigerian international, Pascal Karibe Ojigwe has backed South Africa to reach the quarterfinals at the ongoing Afcon.

South Africa's Bafana Bafana cruised past their Angolan counterparts, Palancas Negras, two-nil at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Wednesday to inject life into their Africa Cup of Nations campaign on home soil.

South Africa v Angola - Text Commentary Highlights

Ojigwe believes that South Africa's win over Angola will boost the confidence of Gordon Igesund's men to push for a place in the last eight.

"It is a good result (for South Africa). They deserved to win this game (against Angola) after the draw (with Cape Verde). I think they will qualify for the next round. It is good they are beginning to win after the draw," the winner of the 1993 edition of the Fifa Under-17 World Cup with Nigeria's Golden Eaglets said on a live radio programme on Brila FM.

Orlando Pirates' defender, Siyabonga Sangweni put Bafana Bafana in front before striker Lehlohonolo Majoro came off the bench to get the insurance goal for the hosts.

South Africa now lead Group A of the Afcon on four points pending the outcome of the game between Cape Verde and Morocco on Wednesday night.
