AFCON 2015 South Africa 1-1 Senegal Player Ratings
Jackson Mabokgwane 6
Impressive distribution but didn’t command area well, with position particularly suspect.
Anele Ngcongca 7
Tireless performance from right back, ensured Mane didn’t have much joy.
Eric Mathoho 6
Senegal’s height troubled him at set pieces but was solid in open play.
Thulani Hlatshwayo 6
Started off the match well but forced off with concussion.
Andre Jali 5
One of the best touches of the tournament in the 77th minute but wasteful passing decisions in the final third.
Dean Furman 6
Diligent in midfield with a couple of crunching tackles.
Oupa Manyisa 6
Not as active as he was against Algeria but took his goal well.
Thuso Phala 6
Started the game well but faded and was rightly taken off just past the hour.
Sibusiso Vilakazi 6
A lot of time on the ball in the first half but generally didn’t use it well.
Tokelo Rantie 6
His pace always makes him a threat to any defence but he never looks like scoring against decent opposition.
Ayanda Gcaba 6
Slotted in well for Hlatshwayo, not putting a foot wrong.
Reneilwe Letsholonyane 6
Added bite into the Bafana Bafana midfield.
Bernard Parker 6
Pressed Senegal well and was generally lively after coming on.
Bouna Coundoul 6
The Senegal captain wasn’t tested much in his goal.
Lamine Gassama 6
Could have shown more awareness for South Africa’s goal, but made up for it with a great block on Matlaba.
Lamine Sane 7
A mainstay in the Senegal defence, typically solid.
Kara Mbodji 7
Good towering header for the equaliser, swept well at the back against a pacey Bafana Bafana attack.
Cheick Mbengue 6
Superb tackle to deny Rantie, defensively reliable throughout.
Alfred N’Diaye 5
Aerially good as ever, but it’s difficult to see what else he brings to the team.
Idrissa Gueye 6
Senegal’s Mr Reliable, a solid all-round performance in his water-carrier role.
Sadio Mane 6
Could see why Senegal desperately included him in the team. Added spark.
Moussa Sow 5
Lacked the service but his flicks and passes didn’t quite come off.
Mame Biram Diouf 6
Lively once Senegal equalised. Never stops working despite the lack of service.
