Bafana continue winless streak

South Africa coach Joel Santana
Joel Santana is under increasing pressure after the Bafana's poor run
South Africa lost 1-0 to Guinea in a friendly in Pretoria on Tuesday, extending their barren streak to five games without a win.

Yady Camara scored the visitors' winner with a beautifully struck long-range effort on 18 minutes to heap more pressure on Bafana Bafana coach Joel Santana.

The loss came just three days after the 2010 World Cup hosts were eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers after a 1-0 loss to Nigeria.

Santana made wholesale changes to the team after Saturday's defeat but, despite having two goals disallowed for offside, the South African reserves gave the crowd of about 2,000 at Atteridgeville Super Stadium little to cheer.
