Bafana Bafana beats Egypt in Afcon quarter finals. Great play for Bafana Bafana.
Egypt were one of the tournament favourites. Bafana had a foot on the plane home before scraping into the last-16 as the fourth-best third-placed finishers.
But coach Stuart Baxter, so embattled, so castigated, had promised something different here in this last-16 mission impossible in front of the 75,000 home cauldron at Cairo International Stadium.
And Bafana provided it. The drama, the glory, the intensity. This was the Bafana every South African knew existed. They took the game.
Well done Bafana.
