If Ghana wins by a single goal against Bafana Bafana on Sunday, they will have a +4 margin in the final score, whereas South Africa would have a +4 margin (both at thirteen points).The most goals scored inside the group is the following criterion.The two sides, Bafana and Ghana, currently have six goals apiece, putting them in a tie for first place. With a win, the Black Stars will improve by one and progress.
