South Africa thumped ten-man Swaziland 5-1 in their COSAFA Cup semi-final clash at Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek, Namibia on Wednesday night.
Menzi Masuku netted twice for Bafana, who will meet either Botswana or Dr Congo in the final on Saturday.
Sihlangu stole ahead when Tony Tsabedze calmly finished in the 37th minute after being released by reported Kaizer Chiefs target Felix Badenhorst.
However, Harris ‘Madze’ Bulunga's outfit lost momentum once Siyabonga Mdluli received a second caution in the 49th minute.
Bafana Bafana equalised three minutes later from a Thabiso Kutumela free-kick.
Lebogang Phiri made it 2-1 soon after as his deflected volley found the target before substitute Masuku struck from close range just shy of the hour-mark.
Judas Moseamedi got in on the act in the 75th minute as he cut in sharply before firing home.
Masuku then completed his brace in the 83rd minute with a tap-in to seal the rout.
