Also equally incredible was how Bafana Bafana did not concede a single goal and ended as the tournament’s leading goalscorers.
Bafana Bafana walked away with R500 000 after lifting The #COSAFACup2021 title beating Senegal on penalties, 2nd Place – Senegal got R250 000, 3rd Place – Eswatini got R150 000 and 4th Place – Mozambique got R100 000.
Incredible sportsmanship from @FootballSenegal, got their silver medals instead of walking away to cry a river they decided to go and do a guard of honour for the Champions @BafanaBafana! pic.twitter.com/E7Vf7GOZAS
