Action from Day 2 of the Copa Coca-Cola Global Cup

Posted: 8 October 2017 Time: 09:45

There's a possibility that South Africa 1 and South Africa 2 may face each other in the final after both sides progressed to the semifinals on Day 2 of the 2017 COPA Coca-Coca Global Cup on Saturday.

The tournament, which is hosted for the first time on African soil in Durban, is a five-a-side event with boys and girls under the age of 15.

After an impressive 104 goals were scored on Day 1 at Durban's North Beach on Friday, only 43 goals were scored on Day 2, which is a sign that teams are getting used to the conditions just near the sea where the stadium is built.

The South African teams have taken advantage of playing on home soil. The South Africa 1 team, coached by former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Simba Marumo, narrowly defeated East Africa 7-6 in the quarterfinals.

They were joined in the semis by Jabulani Mendu's South Africa 2, who defeated WIMA 6-3.

East Africa is a squad made up of players from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. WIMA is West Island, Middle Africa, and the squad is made up of players from DRC, Rwanda, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast.

All these games can be watched live on the COPA Coca-Cola Facebook page.
