JOHANNESBURG - The fate of Bafana Bafana's Africa Cup of Nations campaign is now out of their own hands.

South Africa created very little going forward as Percy Tau's first-half effort went agonisingly wide.

Bafana Bafana finished their campaign in Group D with a 1-0 defeat to Morocco.

The 1996 African champions conceded a late in Cairo.

It was a third successive one-goal victory at the tournament for Morocco, who finished ahead of the Ivory Coast in the standings with South Africa third.

Stuart Baxter and company will need other results to work in their favour if they are to advance to the round of 16.
