Bafana Bafana South Africa has caught up with Zambia on the number of COSAFA Cup title victories.
Hosts South Africa lifted the 2021 COSAFA Cup trophy on July 18 when they beat guest side Senegal 5-4 on post-match penalties following a 0-0 draw played at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
South Africa hosted this year’s tournament in Nelson Mandela Bay from July 6-18.
Bafana join Zambia on five COSAFA Cup wins and are now both one title less than record winners Zimbabwe.
Sundays win is South Africa’s first COSAFA Cup victory since taking home the trophy in Windhoek when Namibia hosted the 2016 COSAFA Cup.
