The national pride at stake was quite evident with neither team wanting to give anything away to the opponents making it a tight yet enthralling game of football.

Christian (Koffi) made the breakthrough for the Ivory Coast before half time with a fine volley which ruffled the net.

A highly competitive second half which saw a South African backlash resulted in a nail biting finish as Ivory Coast held on for the victory which sparked celebrations in their camp which was graciously greeted by the beaten South Africans led by the South African Consulate General, Pule Malafane.

The South Africans held their heads high after a sensational display in the league saw them finish as the runners-up.
