POLOKWANE, South Africa (AP) -- Katlego Mphela converted two penalties and South Africa defeated Guatemala 5-0 on Monday in the last chance for players from the host nation team to impress before the World Cup squad is announced.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Surprise Moriri and Bernard Parker also scored at the Peter Mokaba Stadium to give Bafana Bafana a boost in the final run-in to the tournament.

Guillermo Ramirez missed a second-half penalty for Guatemala when his spotkick was saved by Moeneeb Josephs.

Captain Aaron Mokoena became the first player to win 100 caps for South Africa and celebrated by wearing the number 100 on his shirt.

Coach Carlos Alberto Parreira will cut five players Tuesday to get his roster to 23.
