[Sport] AFCON qualifiers: South Africa dumped out after losing 2-0 to Sudan


South Africa will not feature in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations after going down 2-0 away to Sudan on Sunday evening.

Bafana Bafana needed to beat Sudan in their last qualification match but were stunned by two first-half goals from Saifeldin Bakhit and Mohamed Abdel Raman.

Bakhit gave the hosts the lead after just three minutes, and the visitors could not find a way back.

Their hopes of getting back in the game were shattered after Raman doubled the hosts’ lead in the 32nd minute, setting them on the path to a memorable win, returning to the AFCON for the first time since 2012.
