3 TALKING POINTS: BAFANA V SEYCHELLES
Although not involved too much in the game, striker Lebo Mothiba made it three goals in as many matches for Bafana with his goal at FNB Stadium yesterday.
The France-based forward made his debut for the national team back in March during the Four Nations tournament in Zambia, and helped Bafana win the competition.
This was his first major qualifier, and to get a goal can only build his confidence at this level.
With Keagan Dolly unavailable due to injury, having started the previous qualifier against Libya last month, Aubrey Modiba took his place and made an argument why he should be considered on the left side of midfield more often.
Like his nickname “Postman”, he was delivering, setting up captain Thulani Hlatshwayo for the second Bafana goal.
South Africa managed to record their biggest ever win, overtaking the 5-0 victory over Guatemala in the lead-up to the World Cup on home soil eight years ago.
A ruthless Bafana showed Seychelles no mercy to run riot, sending a statement to the continent’s minnows – something which they have failed to do in the past.
