COSAFA Cup hosts and 2016 champions South Africa were dumped out of the regional tournament on Sunday by Tanzania in a shock result.
Elias Maguri scored the winner in the 18th minute as minnows Tanzania upset Bafana Bafana 1-0 in the quarter-final clash in Rustenburg.
Bafana Bafana were favourites to win the tournament despite fielding a second-string squad.
New head coach Stuart Baxter handed out debuts to eight players as Bafana were expected to cruise into the semi-finals.
But it was Tanzania who took the lead in the first half when Maguri fired in a low shot as the South Africa defence failed to clear their lines.
South Africa only last month defeated the Super Eagles 2-0 in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo in Baxter’s first match in charge in his second spell as Bafana boss.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
