Bafana Bafana have registered their first in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers after they beat Sudan 1-0 at Orlando Stadium.

Lebogang Phiri made a breakthrough on the stroke of halftime as his left-footed strike broke the deadlock for his first goal in Bafana colours.

Bafana coach went for an all out-attack, as he brought on Bradley Grobler and Kermit Erasmus for Mothiba and Serero respectively.

Grobler could have doubled Bafana's lead but his shot in the box was ruled offside.

It could and should have been a far more comfortable afternoon for South Africa, but they've held on to the victory — a much-needed one after the Ghana defeat in Cape Coast on Thursday night.
