Cape Town City FC skipper Lebogang Manyama scored his first national team goal in an international friendly match against Zambia played at Moruleng Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Chipolopolo beat Bafana Bafana 2-1 in an international friendly thanks to the only first half goal by Manyama and two defensive blunders in the second half.
Coming off an impressive 2-0 away win over Nigeria on Saturday in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, coach Stuart Baxter made wholesale changes to that side in a bid to broaden a pool of his players but things didn’t go according to plan.
Lebogang Manyama gave the home side a deserved lead midway through the first half with a solid header from an Andile Jali delicate pass.
Zambia hit back late in the second half through Brian Mwila and Lubinda Mundia to remove some shine off the weekend result.
The on-form Lebogang Manyama was awarded the “man of the match” in his first full-game for Bafana
