Zambian Bench Wins It Against Bafana
Posted: 11 October 2020
Bafana Bafana head coach Molefe Ntseki will have much to think about ahead of their crucial games in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers next month after going down 2-1 against Zambia in Rustenburg on Sunday afternoon.
Ntseki’s men started off the game brighter of the two sides with their pass and move pass and move strategy, which has always been their strength.
In the opening exchanges of the game, Bafana created the better chances but were unable to convert, while Zambia played on a counter.
It looked a situation of “You have the ball Bafana, and we’ll have the goals”, as it went to the break goalless. The game continued in the same vein in the second stanza, with Bafana having a lot of the ball.
It was no surprise when South Africa opened the scoring with a picture-perfect pass from Anderlecht star, Percy Tau, to his former club mate, Keagan Dolly, who side-stepped the ‘keeper and slotted it home into the empty net, 1-0 Bafana.
However, in the last fifteen minutes of the game, Chipolopolo head coach Mulitin Stredojevic made magical changes to his team, with both Kampampa and Zulu scoring the goals, 2-1 to Zambia.
Ntseki and his technical team will have to go back to the drawing board and possibly work on his defence before next month’s important clashes.
