“We showed in the second half that we can’t switch off. We have to keep on doing the right things and when we don’t do that then instead of becoming a threat to the opposition we are a threat to ourselves,” Baxter said in a post-match interview.
The loss ended Bafana's 18-match unbeaten run which they looked on course to extend when Lebogang Manyama handed them a 1-0 half-time lead.
“I’m pleased with the first half performances. The last 15 minutes (of the game) we started kicking back into life and created a few chances," he continued.
“So on the run of play, we should have scored them and ended with a draw as a fair result. But miss chances and you always run the risk of losing the game,” Baxter concluded.
