A second-half goal by Bernard Parker earned South Africa a shock 1-0 win over Euro and World champs Spain in the same stadium where La Roja won the 2010 World Cup.
Parker beat Victor Valdes after 57 minutes to stun Vicente del Bosque's side, which lost only its second game in more than three years.
Spain laboured their way to a narrow victory over Equatorial Guinea in an international friendly in Malabo thanks to first half goals from Santi Cazorla and Juanfran Torres.
However, the game will be remembered more for the aggressive challenges from the hosts than for the quality of football.
Vicente del Bosque has signed a contract extension to remain as Spain coach.
Del Bosque will continue at the helm of the reigning world and European champions until 2016. He said at a press conference today: "I can confirm that I have signed with the Spanish national team until 2016."
