The victory came after the home side missed a penalty, as former now-defunct Bidvest Wits star Mokgokolodi Nkele’s penalty was saved.
Dove’s teammate at Chiefs, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, was on the losing side, as he captained his national team.
Mthethwa will receive a R60,000 winning bonus after Percy Tau and Khuliso Mudau’s first-half strikes were enough to see the host South Africa come out with a 2-1 victory over Benin.
The Chiefs star came on as a late second-half sub, replacing Mamelodi Sundowns superstar Themba Zwane.
