On Saturday Bafana Bafana drew 0-0 at home to Libya in their second Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
They are still in a good position with four points from two games, equal on points with Libya and one point ahead of Nigeria.
However South African fans are disappointed with the way they've opened the door for these rivals. They've given away the disadvantaged maintained in Nigeria by losing two points in a game they were expected to win.
Fans were even more unhappy with the blunt performance by Stuart Baxter's men. Here's how they reacted on Twitter.

Banyana Banyana should play a friendly match with Bafana Bafana. Whoever wins should be Satafrika's first team. Finish & Klaap— Man's Not Barry Roux (@AdvBarryRoux) September 8, 2018
Libya have every excuse to be poor, Civil war since 2011, national team gave to train and play in Egypt for safety reasons, but they've been brilliant and Bafana have everything and we playing horribly in first half! Reason....?— Thomas Mlambo (@thomasmlambo) September 8, 2018
Still don’t understand why #Bafana’s altitude advantage in Johannesburg was sacrificed. Every little helps, and the fact that JHB has an elevation of 1,753 metres could have made a difference.— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) September 8, 2018
If Bafana Bafana doesn't qualify Baxter be must fired— makhanyeza (@Vuyie) September 8, 2018
Bafana is playing poorly though... Not sure if it’s the pitch being heavy or what’s going on...— Mpho Letsholonyane (@M_Letsholonyane) September 8, 2018
Am I surprised Bafana were held by Libya in their #AFCON2019Q ?— Steve NOT Komphela (@BigWordKomphela) September 8, 2018
Look Rob, the difference between a horse & a zebra is very huge. Even if you buy a jacket & tell your kids to put it on the zebra, you will not change its stripes.
I hope you understand@robertmarawa
Percy Tau : "We didn't lose so that's a positive" Does he even understand it was Libya and not Brasil??? This mentality will kill us #bafana— Joseph Bertrand (@JoBertrand19) September 8, 2018
