South Africa dumped out of CHAN qualifying by Lesotho
Bafana Bafana crashed out of the African Nations Championship (Chan) after a 3-0 defeat to Lesotho in a second-leg qualifying match played at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Sunday afternoon.
Lesotho emerged victorious 6-2 on aggregate after winning the first leg 3-2 in Maseru last week.
South Africa’s national Under-23 coach, David Notoane, is in charge of the Chan squad. He is using mostly Under-23 players because the plan is to use the Chan games as preparation for the African Nations Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe later this year.
But, after losing the first-leg in Maseru last week, Notoane was of the opinion that he needed some experience to guide the youngsters.
Ethiopia will face Lesotho for World Cup preliminary round draw for Africa.
