Fortune on form
Zuma falls to a foul from Tavarelli
Tavarelli's foul let South Africa equalise
South Africa midfielder Quinton Fortune was all smiles after scoring a last-minute penalty that rescued South Africa against Paraguay.

Bafana Bafana were 2-1 down going into the 90th minute, when a foul by Paraguay's stand-in keeper Tavarelli on Sibusiso Zuma gave them a lifeline.

And the Manchester United winger kept his nerve to secure a point.

"I'm well happy with the penalty right at the end there," Fortune said.

"But we're also a little disappointed because we gave two soft goals away.

"All credit to the lads because they kept working hard and it's got to be a good sign when you come back from two goals down."

South Africa coach Jomo Sono was equally relieved.

"I'm happy that we didn't lose and our confidence is up," he said.

"We knew if we put pressure on them they would lose energy towards the end and that's what happened.

"It was a game of two halves. They controlled the first half and in the second we took over."
