Pretoria - Bafana Bafana played to a goalless draw against a formidable Brazilian team, Cruzeiro, on Wednesday at the Estadio Governador Pinto, commonly known as the Mineiro.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup hosts have so far played four preparatory matches at their Brazilian training camp without registering a loss.

On their first training match on Saturday, Bafana played to a goalless draw against Volta Redonda and then walloped Fluminense 8-0 on Sunday.

On Monday, they walloped Boavista 2-0. Bafana will lock horns against Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday.

However, their tough warm-up match will be against Paraguay on 31 March.
