However, they have an opportunity to put that result behind them with an international friendly against Paraguay.
This encounter is to honour former South Africa president and the late Nelson Mandela, who would have been 100 years old this year.
Mandela passed away in December 2013 at the age of 95, and both sets of players would be playing in honour of him.
While this is just a friendly match, the significance of the encounter cannot be stressed enough.
It will also give coach Stuart Baxter a chance to give those who didn't feature against the Super Eagles some international caps.

With injuries to the likes of Kamohelo Mokotjo, Dean Furman, Bongani Zungu, Keagan Dolly, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Bradley Grobler, Baxter had to include a few players to his squad.
Thulani Serero and Themba Zwane returned to the setup alongside the Tiyani Mabunda. The trio featured against Nigeria, and they are likely to start the match against Paraguay.
Lebohang Phiri and Vincent Phiri could also be given a run, and so is Thembinkosi Lorch as they sat out the Super Eagles clash.
Players such as Siyanda Xulu, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Motjeka Madisha had to settle for a place on the bench in the previous encounter, and it remains to be seen if they will drafted into the line-up this time around.
Potential South Africa XI: Khune, Mphahlele, Hlanti, Hlatshwayo, Mkhwanazi, Kekana, Serero, Maboe, Tau, Mothiba, Ndlovu.
This will be the fifth meeting between South Africa and Paraguay since their first at the 2002 Fifa World Cup finals.
In the previous four encounters, Bafana and Paraguay won one match apiece while the other two matches ended in draws.
The South Africans have scored six goals against the South Americans in those four matches whilst conceding five.
In 2008, Bafana hammered Paraguay 3-0 in an international friendly, before drawing 1-1 two years later.
Bafana Bafana are unbeaten in their last five matches in all competitions (W2, D3, L0), while Paraguay have lost their previous two matches.
