“I think we played well as a team and we can only learn going

forward. We should have won but I think we didn’t support our strikeforce


Aaron Mokoena

“Defensively we did well, until that slip-up when we let them get

the equaliser. At least we had a good start; we didn’t lose. So it is one game

out of our way and we’ll prepare for Uruguay.”

Lucas Thwala

“It was a good experience but I must admit it was tough because we

played against a very intelligent side. I struggled a bit with a problem muscle

and I indicated to the bench my predicament hence my substitution.”
