The Zebras continued on their path to recovery after holding Mozambique's Mambas to a 1-1 in an international friendly match at the FNB Stadium in Soweto yesterday.

Since the Frenchman, Didier Gomes Da Rosa took over in November, the team's fortunes have been on an upward trajectory culminating in a famous 1-0 victory over Guinea in a World Cup qualifier. Da Rosa lost his first match in charge 2-1 against Mozambique in November, but the Zebras are now unbeaten in their last two matches.
