Shakes Mashaba’s side played to a 1-1 draw with former Afcon champions Cameroon in an international friendly at the same venue this past Saturday night.

Vincent Aboubakar put the Indomitable Lions ahead with a brilliantly executed free kick early in the game, but a 76th minute equaliser from Sibusiso Vilakazi ensured the game ended all square.
