Bafana keep World Cup hopes alive

South Africa stayed in the hunt for a place in the 2014 World Cup with a 3-0 victory over the Central African Republic (CAR) at a neutral venue in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Bernard Parker scored Bafana Bafana’s first goal in the 27th minute and Siphiwe Tshabalala doubled their tally shortly before the half-time break.

Katlego Mashego netted a header in injury time during the second half to seal the win.

Earlier today, Ethiopia beat Botswana 2-1 in Addis Ababa to remain top of Group A in the second round of African countries qualifying for the next year’s showpiece.

South Africa were two points behind in second position, while CAR and Botswana were third and fourth respectively, with no chance of qualifying for the Brazil spectacle.

South Africa face Ethiopia in Addis Ababa next week in a crucial clash for top spot in the table.
