Here is how Twitter reacted to South Africa's win over Burkina Faso in the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier

Bafana Bafana gave their 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign a huge boost with a convicing 3-1 win over Burkina Faso on Saturday afternoon. 

Stuart Baxter's men, playing in front of a relatively empty FNB Stadium, netted three first half goals, and although the Stallions scored late in the second half, Bafana held on to claim all the three points. 

After the game, Bafana players thanked the fans for rallying behind the team. 

Several high profile figures, including politicians, football administrators and commentators lauded the national team for their efforts against Burkina Faso.
