Zimbabwe, Bafana sails to Cosafa semis

Sports Zimbabwe, Bafana sails to Cosafa semis

Defending champions Zimbabwe and South Africa matched on the 2013 Cosafa Cup semifinals with respective wins in their quarterfinal doubleheader at Nkoloma Stadium today.

It took penalties to decided Zimbabwe’s passage to the last four after the game had ended 1-1 against Malawi.

Awful shooting by Malawi handed Zimbabwe a 3-1 post-match penalty win over The Flames to maintain their unbeaten run against the latter in the competition.

And in the second kickoff, Bafana Bafana dominated Namibia in a second half display to win 2-1.

Second half substitute Jabulani Shongwe put Bafana ahead in the 47th minute thanks to a howler by Namibia goalkeeper Virgil Vries.

Bafana stretched their lead in the 62nd minute this time from a defensive mix-up by Namibia to see Hlompho Kekana score the important goal for the win.

Namibia were awarded a fortunate penalty in the 73rd minute that had to be retaken twice by Willy Stephanus after Wayne Sandilands had allegedly stepped off the line to save the initial spot kick.

Bafana await the winner of the Zambia-Mozambique quarterfinal match on Sunday in the July 17 semifinals at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Zimbabwe on the other hand will face either Angola or Lesotho in their last four matches on the same date in Ndola.
