South Africa knocked hosts Egypt out of the Africa Cup of Nations and booked their place in the quarter-finals with a late winner in Cairo.
With Egypt committing players forward in the final stages, South Africa hit on the counter-attack as Thembinkosi Lorch calmly slotted into the corner.

The hosts’ best chance fell to Mahmoud Trezeguet, but he could only fire his shot straight at Ronwen Williams.
South Africa will return to the capital to play Nigeria in the last eight.

Amassing nine (9) points in the group is gradually turning to a curse thus far at the 2019 AFCON. After Benin Republic (3 points in group stage) knocked out Morocco (9 points in group stage), host Egypt (9 points in group stage) also suffered defeat in the hands of South Africa (3 points in group stage).

As AFCON Continues, we wait to see if Algeria also with 9 points in thr group stage can defeat Guinea.
