Kamohelo Mokotjo helps South Africa to vital AFCON win

Bafana Bafana beat neighbours Namibia on Friday night

29 June 2019

Kamohelo Mokotjo and South Africa boosted their chances of making the knockout stages at the Africa Cup of Nations after a hard fought 1-0 win over Namibia last night.

Kamohelo was named amongst the substitutes, having started the opening game against Cote D'Ivoire, as the two sides went in level at the break. The decisive goal came just past the hour mark, Bongani Zungu rising highest from a corner to nod past Lloyd Kazapua in the Namibia goal. 

Kamohelo was introduced to help see out the game late on and that was just what he did as South Africa recorded their first points of the tournament. 

The appearance was Kamohelo's 17th for his nation, and gives Bafana Bafana real hope of progressing from Group D. Their final game is against group leaders Morocco on Monday. Victory would guarantee their progress through to the last 16 while anything less would likely leave them dependant on other results to go through as one of the four best third-place sides.
