It was a good start for South Africa in yesterday’s match at Rio, where the South African side they forced the host Brazil to a goalless draw keeping their heads high in group A ahead of their next encounter.
South Africa exhibited high sense of maturity and discipline in their defense despite getting a red card in the 6oth minutes, but they curtailed the damage which the home team could cause by keeping them from scoring, rendering the Brazilian fans speechless at the end of the match.
Brazil’s draw in the match, means that the hosts of the last six Olympic games have failed to win their opening fixture in the men’s football event. Hence, Brazil failed to break the jinx.
