Bafana snatch a late equaliser,Brazil beat Chile
Bongani Zungu scored in stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw for South Africa against arch-rivals Nigeria. A superb Ahmed Musa goal on 85 minutes had put the Super Eagles ahead before a 20,000 crowd at Mbombela Stadium in north-eastern city Nelspruit.
With a goalless draw looming, Russia-based winger Musa curled the ball from just outside the box over goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune into the far corner. Midfielder Zungu then stabbed the ball into the net from close range after Akpeyi parried a shot into his path.
Brazil extended their winning streak under new coach Dunga to eight matches as Roberto Firmino came off the bench to secure a 1-0 win against Chile in a feisty friendly at the Emirates Stadium in north London on Sunday.
The Hoffenheim attacking midfielder’s second-half goal capped an impressive few days for Brazil, who won 3-1 against France in Paris on Thursday and survived a bruising encounter with South American rivals Chile to maintain Dunga’s 100 per cent record. In contrast, Chile’s third defeat in four matches leaves them with plenty to work to do before their Copa challenge.
