Bongani Khumalo led South Africa to victory against Angola in their second group match in the African Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

ACN joy for Bongani

The central defender - on loan at Greek Super League side PAOK this season - captained the team and missed a good headed chance before goals from Siyabonga Sangweni and Lehlohonolo Majoro secured a vital victory in Durban.

Bongani has now helped Bafana Bafana to successive clean sheets in the tournament and they are well-placed to qualify for the knockout stages with a final group match against Morocco to follow on Sunday - their chances boosted further by Morocco's draw against Cape Verde last night.

Meanwhile, striker Emmanual Adebayor is next in action with Togo against Algeria on Saturday.
