10 thrilling Bafana Bafana matches
South Africa 1 - 1 Denmark
In their first appearance at a Fifa World Cup in 1998, South Africa began the tournament with a disappointing 3-0 drubbing by eventual champions France. Facing European opposition once more, Bafana Bafana put their last game behind them and secured an unlikely draw against Denmark, scoring their first World Cup goal in the process. Record scorer Benni McCarthy was on target in Toulouse, as Bafana had to fight back from a goal down after Allen Nielsen had put the Danes in the lead 12 minutes into the match. The result provided South Africa with their first point in a Fifa World Cup.
