Cosafa Cup report card – Brooks, Phohlongo come out on top

The pair of Ethan Brooks and Masilake Phohlongo reigned supreme against Justice Figareido on Thursday afternoon at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in the Cosafa Cup.

Bafana Bafana emerged as 1-0 victors at the expense of Eswatini. The duo of Brooks and Phohlongo were colossal for the South African senior national team.

Their contributions steered Bafana closer to the knockout stages of the competition while Figareido will have to fight for it another day.

Brooks and Phohlongo are in line to compete in the semi-finals of the Cosafa Cup.

Bafana Bafana has amassed six points after two games. They are currently on top of the log while Eswatini is second with three points after the same number of games.

Phohlongo and Brooks will return to action against Lesotho on Tuesday. On other hand, Figo will be looking to help Eswatini bounce back when they face Zambia on Saturday.
