The result may not have been what fans were hoping for, but the atmosphere during last night's match between Bafana Bafana and Norway at the Cape Town Stadium was a lively one. Capetonians were happy to see the national side playing again, even if they lost the match 1-0. Bafana Bafana hadn't played in the city since 2010, and the chance to watch a game provided a fun evening out for everyone.
Social media were buzzing with updates from the game, and Twitter users shared their experiences on the #BafanaVSNorway hashtag. Here are some of the photos that were tweeted last night:
