wayne Sandilands save helps Bafana finish third

Ndola, Zambia – Captain Wayne Sandilands saved a penalty as South Africa beat Lesotho 2-1 to finish third at the Cosafa Cup.

The goalkeeper guessed right as defender Tlali Maile took the spot kick, diving left and making a one-handed block in Zambian mining city Ndola.

With Ralekoti Mokhahlane sidelined, Maile took over the penalty-taking duties and converted one midway through the opening half for Likuena (Crocodiles).

Mandla Masongo levelled close to half-time and fellow midfielder Hlompho Kekana nudged Bafana Bafana ahead on 53 minutes.

It was the second goal of the 15-day tournament for Kekana, whose industry and finishing earned him the man-of-the-match award.

Hosts Zambia face title-holders Zimbabwe later today in the final of the southern Africa national team championship at the same stadium.
