This means, Bafana have qualified for the Afcon quarter-finals in eleven year’s, something which the nation is proud of. They’re top of the group A.
He might have conceded the easiest goals but the talismanic Khune, pulled off more than five saves to take his teammates to an all important quarter-finals either against DR Congo or Mali, if not Ghana.
With his defenders caught napping often than not and their backs against the walls, Khune had to act as a sweeper for both captain Bongani Khumalo and goalscorer Siyabonga Sangweni (curvaceous goal indeed), whose mis-communication could have resulted in national embarrassment.
Decisive, precise and dependable, Khune on his day saved our SOUL, if truth be told!
Yes, Bafana did come to the party following the wake up goals from Issam El Adoua and Abdelilah Hafid.
With the hardworking combination of Dean Furman and May Mahlangu, who scored another astounding curving goal –which left Moroccan ‘keeper hapless- the team showed tenacity and what has been their lacking arsenal: fighting back spirit.
Oh, what a CLASS ACT our boys displayed last night. For a change the team expected no favours from other teams!
Coach Gordon Igesund and his technical team, Serame Letsoaka -should and must work on their last defence. It’s shaky and suspect. We cannot at this stage commit such horrendous, childish mistakes which could have brought misery to the nation, particularly as hosts.
Fikile “Mbaks” Mbalula, Minister of Sport, says:” South Africans are commended for backing Bafana Bafana and attending the tournament matches in all host cities.
The jovial mood of the fans at Moses Mabhida stadium contributed to the team’s success on the battle ground. Moses Mabhida and the forebears descended down Egagasini and declared that Bafana Bafana will remain in the city for the quarterfinal feat.”
For now, no need to pick on players’as we preapre for the REAL DEAL!
Boys, its all or nothing in the quarter-finals…
