The South Africans even had a penalty just before the hour mark, but Nompumelelo Nyandeni spot-kick was saved by goalkeeper Botswana goalkeeper Sedilame Bosija.

The home side poured forward in search of an advantage, but to no avail – until the last seconds of the game. Lebogang Ramalepe provided the cross and Seoposenwe headed the ball home.
