Beating the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon is such a high that one would not mind watching the game over and over again, just for the thrill of it.

For many South Africans the only feeling that could beat that would be an emphatic win over Nigeria's Super Eagles. The reasons are not hard to come by.

We just don't like losing to both teams.

They may have been without two or three of their stars like Samuel Eto'o and Geremi but the highlights of that game, to be aired by the African Soccer Television show on SABC1 Sports' Laduma programme on Sunday at 2.30pm, will show that Bafana Bafana played with guts.

Highlights of the Fifa 2009 Confederations Cup draw that was held in Sandton at the weekend will also be shown.

The draw, which was described as kind to Bafana Bafana, saw the locals grouped with Iraq, New Zealand and Spain. A semifinal berth seems possible from that group.

The continent has always looked to Ghana and Nigeria to produce the champions in any women's football tournament and the Sixth African Women Championships in Guinea were no exception as the two played to a scintillating 1-all draw in the group stages.

This time around they both failed with Banyana Banyana and Equatorial Guinea contesting the final after both had beaten the West African powerhouses.

Other highlights include the Ivory Coast derby between Africa Sport and Asec Mimosa, which also ended 1-all in Abidjan.
