Chippa United’s David Zulu opened the scoring for Bafana, before strike partner Kermit Erasmus missed a first-half penalty following a foul on SuperSport United’s Sibusiso Khumalo in the 18-yard area.

Erasmus continued to be a threat on Dino Visser’s goal, with the Polokwane goalkeeper eventually beaten by the Pirates’ frontman to secure the 2-0 friendly victory.
