Khune starts for Bafana in must-win Senegal clash

Barker confident of Bafana win with Khune in goal

Sadio Mane was in fine form as Senegal beat South Africa 2-0 on Friday to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 2002.

South Africa defeated Senegal 2-1 in Polokwane last November, but Federation Internationale de Football Association ordered a replay because of "match manipulation" by Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey, who was banned for life.

Aliou Cissé's men topped Group D of the African qualifiers with 11 points from five games to earn qualification, with one remaining game against South Africa to take place in Dakar.

Burkina Faso now occupy second place on six points, while Cape Verde, also on six points, are third.

Senegal is the third African nation to secure qualification to the world's most prestigious competition after Nigeria and Egypt who managed to accomplish the target.

Morocco are one point in front of the Ivory Coast ahead of a showdown in Abidjan with the visitors hoping to end a 20-year absence from the World Cup.

Itumeleng Khune started in goal for the hosts after recovering from a facial fracture sustained in Sunday's Telkom Knockout quarter-final between Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United.

Ephraim Mashaba looked to change the game from the substitutes' bench, including bringing on Siphiwe Tshabalala, who famously scored the first goal at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

Senegal took the lead after 12 minutes when Sakho raced on to a Mane pass and side-footed the ball to the right of onrushing Khune. Sadio Mané set up Diafra Sakho for a lovely first goal, and Mané was involved in the second as well. After a counter-attack, Mane has his shot saved by Khune, only for the ball to rebound off the head of a falling Thamsanqa Mkhize and into the net for the cruellest of own goals.

As half-time approached, Manyama went close again to scoring, this time from a free-kick that Ndiaye tipped over.
