Bafana Bafana clinch 5th Cosafa trophy

The game had ended a 0-0 at end of 90 grueling minutes and went into extra time in a game played at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

South Africa's Bafana Bafana have been crowned 2021 Cosafa Cup champions after beating Senegal a 5-4 win on penalties, in a game played hot on the heels of massive looting in the Rainbow Nation.

The game had ended a 0-0 at end of 90 grueling minutes and went into extra time in a game played at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.

The extra time also produced no goals, forcing the game into penalties.

Bafana Bafana captain Veli Mothwa saved the fourth penalty from Dominique Mendy and went on to score the fifth spot kick for Bafana Bafana.

West Africa's Lions pf Taranga went into the final having won four matches in a row and were considered as hot favorites to win the finals.

However, some soccer pundits had put their bet on Bafana Banana owing to the fact that the Southern Africa giants were playing at home.

South Africa national team has won the trophy five times, while Zambians are leading the park with record breaking 11 wins seconded by Zimbabwe with six wins while Madagascar won just once.
