Bafana Bafana needed two penalties to see off Guinea-Bissau at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, but it was Percy Tau's stunner as well as Kamohelo Mokotjo's brilliant performance that hogged the headlines at the end of 90 minutes.
Footballers, past and current, sports experts and dignitiries as well as football fans took to social media to react to the win.

Some criticised the two penalties Bafana received on the day, saying they were too soft and should have never been awarded.

Mokotjo, the man who caused a lot of confusion leading up to the match in Durban, earned the plaudits.
