33' - Hlompho Kekana tries another 'click, click, bang' but misfires way into row Z from 35 yards.

32' - Rantie gets to the edge of the area and lays it to Yeye, who bizarrely opts to cut it back when he should have shot.

28' - Serero shows a neat turn and picks out the onrushing Phala, whose shot is blocked. Serero looking good today.

11' - GOAL!! Patosi slots into the bottom-right corner after great work from Rantie! Aus 0-1 SA.

8' - Meyiwa with another save as the Aussies put massive pressure on Bafana's backline!

7' - Double save by Meyiwa! First diving to his left to keep out a delected shot then a point-blank header from a corner!

5' – Frenetic start to the game as Australia boss the play in the opening exchanges. 

1' – The match is underway. South Africa in white and Australia in gold.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane will captain the side as Gordon Igesund prepares for what could be his second-last game in charge.

Thulani Serero says the team is ready to "shock everyone" today.

Senzo saves, another save by Senzo, double save from Senzo... so many saves, he receives credit for letting a goal in and not keeping the team in the game
