Hello and welcome to our live coverage of this international friendly between Bafana Bafana and Zambia at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
Bafana Bafana get the game underway. They will need a better performance than in their game against the Brave Warriors on Thursday.
Foster is down following a collision with Sakala, who clattered into him from behind in the air.
Foster is stretchered off the field of play. Bafana have a free-kick within shooting range.
Tau looks to place one in the top corner, but Mwange shuffles across and makes the save.
Mwange is receiving medical attention after clattering into the post while keeping out Tau's free-kick.
On comes Keagan Dolly in place of Lyle Foster in an early forced change for Bafana Bafana.
Tau is fouled in the middle of the park and Bafana take the free-kick short, but then lose possession carelessly. Hlatshwayo is forced to get back and make a block off Kings Kangwa's shot.
A long-range effort from Musonda flies some distance over the target from the corner following Hlatshwayo's block.
The passing from Bafana has been sloppy in the early minutes. Molefi Ntseki has some thinking to do before the half-time break.
At the other end, Kutumela lets fly from long range. It's a fierce effort, but flies just off target.
Evans Kangwa cuts back for Sikombe, but he can't get a shot away inside the penalty area under pressure.
Evans Kangwa puts in another dangerous cross, but Modisha makes a last-ditch intervention to clear behind, denying Sakala a tap-in.
Evans Kangwa is proving tricky to deal with for the South Africa defence. He wins a free-kick off Kutumela inside the Zambian half.
Fashion Sakala cuts back for Sikombe, who goes down in the penalty area. No penalty!
Tau goes for goal from another free-kick. He fires off target this time.
After a brief cooling break, Mwange restarts proceedings with a goal-kick.
Musonda gets around Jali in the penalty area and appears to be impeded, but doesn't go down. That possibly denies him a penalty as he can't get a clean shot away. Bafana scramble the ball behind for a corner. Mwape heads off target.
Tau lets fly from the edge of the box. Mwange makes a flying save to keep his shot out.
Madisha meets the resulting corner with his head, but steers the ball off target and behind for a goal-kick.
POST! Musonda's long-range strike cannons off the upright. Bafana are so lucky to still be level.
At the other end, Tau goes on a marauding run and cuts back into the danger area, but there's nobody to finish off and the ball is scrambled away.
Kutumela gets on the end of a long ball and takes a first-time shot, but Mwange is alert to the danger and blocks his effort on the half-volley.
Brilliant work from Tau to flash the ball across the face of goal, but Dolly just can't get there quickly enough at the far post.
HALF-TIME: SOUTH AFRICA 0-0 ZAMBIA. It's been another disappointing half of football for Bafana Bafana. They are crying out for a striker to make the runs to finish off the chances Percy Tau is creating. Zambia have created some clear chances too and even hit the post, but there's no score at the break.
Fashion Sakala fires over the target from close range. A chance goes abegging for Zambia.
Tau whips in a free-kick towards the far post. Mwange spills it and it goes behind. A goal-kick is incorrectly awarded. That should have been a corner.
Five minutes of stoppage time have been added on at the end of a scrappy first half.
Zambia get the second half underway. They probably had the better of the first half, but South Africa looked threatening towards the end.
Keet is forced to intercept a pass to prevent a one-on-one situation with Musonda. Good work from the goalkeeper.
South Africa lose the ball in a dangerous area and it takes a last-ditch intervention from Madisha to take the ball off Evans Kangwa.
Bafana appeal for a penalty -- seemingly for handball -- none given.
CHANCE! Evans Kangwa's cross finds Sikombe, who somehow misses the target from close range. What a lucky man Keet is!
Frosler looks to play Tau into space on Bafana's right, but he lets the pass run beyond the byline and out of play for a goal-kick.
Dolly's delivery is headed clear. The ball comes back into the box again and is cleared once more.
Teboho Mokoena's effort takes a deflection and loops behind for a corner.
Sikombe is pulled back and Hlanti picks up a yellow card for that.
There was a third Zambian substitution there -- Lungu for Kangwa.
Leonard Mulenga comes on in place of Sikombe and Chabula in place of Musonda for Zambia.
Hlanti whips in a free-kick from South Africa's left, but it's headed away.
Kutumela gets the pass in the penalty area and goes down. However, the flag goes up for offside. That was a marginal call.
GOAL, SOUTH AFRICA, DOLLY! 1-0: Dolly is played in behind, rounds the 'keeper, and taps in. Tau provided the assist. South Africa finally lead!
Zwane makes way for Nodada and Mvala replaces Jali in Bafana Bafana colours.
Maela's first involvement is to give the ball away in a dangerous area. It takes a block from Madisha to deny Chabula after he received the cut-back from Kings Kangwa.
Maela is also on for South Africa in place of Hlanti.
Erasmus comes on in place of Kutumela for Bafana as Ntseki looks for a second goal.
Musakanya comes on in place of Kings Kangwa and Kapumbu is also on for Zambia.
Play is back underway following the second cooling break.
GOAL, ZAMBIA, KAMPAMBA! 1-1: Kampamba fires through Hlatshwayo's legs and into the bottom corner! Fantastic shot from just outside the box.
Dolly intercepts a pass and looks to play Erasmus in behind, but he overhits the pass.
GOAL, ZAMBIA, ZULU! 1-2: Zambia take the lead! Lungu tees up Zulu, who lets Hlatshwayo play him onside before tapping home!
Mokoena whips in a free-kick towards the far post, but that's overhit and goes behind for a goal-kick.
On comes Luther Singh as a late substitute in an effort to change this game and find a late equaliser. Mokoena has made way.
Reeve Frosler goes into the book, picking up a yellow card for a pull-back. More frustration for South Africa.
FULL-TIME: SOUTH AFRICA 1-2 ZAMBIA. Two late goals from Chipolopolo saw them down Molefi Ntseki's men. It was another disappointing afternoon for the hosts. Zulu and Kampamba scored for Zambia and Dolly for Bafana earlier.
Mwange is down, possibly looking to run down the clock.
Into four minutes of stoppage time we go.
Chilongoshi picks up a yellow card for his foul on Luther Singh.
