With Hans Vonk on goal, South Africa won their first-ever match against Nigeria. Bafana won 2-1 in the 'Nelson Mandela Challenge Match'.
Vonk had to save a few times, especially on moves by Inter forward Martins. Former Ajax player Benni McCarthy was South-Africa's striker. Steven Pienaar was unable to participate in the friendly, due to the knee injury he sustained in the match against Feyenoord.
Nourdin Boukhari played a friendly with Morocco against Bourkina Fasso. Morocco won the match 4-0 and Ajax's left winger scored his team's second in the 68th minute.
