Fans took to Twitter to express their views on the entertaining encounter which produced five goals
South Africa showed character as they came from behind to claim a 3-2 victory over Uganda in an international friendly match which was played on Thursday evening.
Brace-hero Evidence Makgopa, 21, and Bongokuhle Hlongwane, 20, both scored as a youthful Bafana Bafana side edged out the Cranes 3-2 at the 2010 Fifa World Cup training venue, Orlando Stadium.
Uganda, who were missing key players such as Joseph Ochaya, Khalid Aucho, Farouk Miya and Kizito Luwagga, scored through Ibrahim Orit and Abdu Lumala with the Cranes extending their winless run to seven games.
Many took to social media to share their thoughts on the match with most Bafana fans impressed by the team’s performance, while some Cranes fans slammed coach Abdallah Mubiru.
Here is how Twitter reacted to Bafana’s win over the Cranes:
I think Bafana Bafana is ready to play in the EURO 2021. there is no competitions for us in Africa

In a general view to that game I see Mubiru isn’t feet to be the cranes coach he is rigid on one game plan he can’t change his plan as the game is advancing

As Bafana Bafana, we want to play France now 🥺🥺

Do you think Abdalla Mubiru can manage the Uganda Cranes??
— The Romantic Mukiga (@emeka_ug) June 10, 2021
Nice Friendly. Maybe Mubiru needs time. He needs to learn from mistakes in every game. We need to learn how to defend.
We want to play posession football yet we dont have ball players.
All league clubs shd adopt the national team philosophy if it’s to succeed. https://t.co/SRioyEF23U

Evidence makgopa is better than cr7 nd bruno Fernandez combined
— Pontsho Mjava (@mjava_pontsho) June 10, 2021
I think Coach Mubiru is still lacking in plan B, He failed to match the changes made by the South African coach in the second half half which makes him still wanting for the National team duty
— Michael of Uganda🇺🇬 (@MUBIRUMIKE1) June 10, 2021
So Evidence Makgopa scores 2 goals & suddenly he’s the next Benni McCarthy?!?
Dude couldn’t even score 8 PSL goals!
Haai, Bafana Bafana football fans!😅🤣 pic.twitter.com/bxN1Kts9JS

Decent game we may have lost but two away goals is a positive to pick and base on to build our team. Applause to Abdul Mubiru 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

SA needed a NEW coach for Bafana Bafana – we have THAT coach in Helmen Mkhelele. Hugo can just assist.
End of story.
