Bafana Bafana suffered a 2-1 defeat to Cape Verde in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Praia on Friday evening.

Stuart Baxter's charges broke the deadlock in the 14th minute when Tokelo Rantie accelerated past two defenders before calmly slotting past the goalkeeper.
 
Cape Verde levelled matters in the 31st minute when Nuno Rocha found the back of the net with a deflected effort.
 
The hosts were then awarded a penalty a few minutes later when Dean Furman was adjudged to have committed a foul. Rocha stepped up and made no mistake from the spot to make it 2-1 at the break.

Bafana's task was made tougher in the second half when Eric Mathoho was shown a straight red card for a late tackle in the 66th minute.
