Believe it or not, Nigeria will not defend their cup and Bafana, who topped the group with 13-points have booked their seat to finals. Yipeee!
Although both sides shared the spoils 2-all, Bafana players have shown character, discipline and that fighting spirit. Yes, that monkey is still on our backs but not for long I dare said it.
Two classical and individual goals by Tokelo Rantie, who ran-rugged the defence of hosts has shown maturity-although some, including yours truly was against him in the first starting eleven- the boy was a marvel to watch last night.
He could have scored more than four goals had he composed himself. In kasie lingua ‘he showed them ‘nyoso.’
At happy times like this it is appropriate to shower our boys with praises, however, let me hasten to state that our ‘keeper Darren Keet and our captain par excellence Dean Furman, once again came to the party when odds were against us.
To Shakes Mashaba and his technical team, congrats are in order “Mshege”.
Reneilwe Letsholonyane almost spoilt the party but he’s forgiven.
“Yeye” you’re forgiven for that red-car but next time be extra careful because your booking changed the complexion of the game, which we should have won for the first time against our nemesis’.
FOR NOW IT’S CELEBRATION TIME AND WHAT A FESTIVE SEASON WILL THIS BE.
Yes, securing our spot in the finals was again in honour of our fallen star Senzo Meyiwa. Wherever he is, he’s smiling on you boys!
To SAFA job well done.
