The visitors thrashed the Scorpions in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier at the Independence Stadium on Saturday.
After eleven minutes Bafana Bafana’s intentions were clear with Mandla Masango, who got through but his shot was blocked.
Then Keagan Dolly passed for Hlompho Kekana who shot wide six minutes later. SA were busy as immediately after that Andile Jali set up Thamsanqa Gabuza but he didn’t trouble Gambia goalkeeper Alhagie Nyabally.
In the 25th minute when Thulani Serero was injured and had to be replaced by Sibusiso Vilakazi.
That didn’t stop Orlando Pirates striker Gabuza who finished a wonderful team move to give SA the lead.
In the 36th minute, Kaba Sambou tried his luck from range for the Scorpions, but the midfielder’s attempt sailed over Bafana shot-stopper Itumeleng Khune’s goal-posts.
Gabuza grabbed his brace and Bafana’s second goal when he combined with Dolly, before tapping the ball home from close range seven minutes before the half-time break.
Bafana shot-stopper Khune was called into action three minutes after the restart producing a great save to deny Scorpions forward Steve Trawally.
Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Dolly then made a name himself with a powerful long range shot that beat the keeper in the 55th minute.
If that wasn’t enough, Dolly sealed Bafana’s 4-0 victory with ten minutes left with a thunderous shot from outside the box which beat Nyabally.
South Africa remain third on Group M standings with six points – one behind second-placed Mauritania with one game left.
