Mashego: I’ll Cherish The Moment

Mashego: I’ll Cherish The Moment Forever
Posted: 12 October 2021

Cape Town City FC Defender Terrance Mashego made his debut for Bafana Bafana over the weekend in their 3-1 win against Ethiopia at the Bahir Dar International Stadium.

The gifted fullback shares his experience of donning the famous green and gold of Bafana, saying;

“I think that’s a moment I’ll forever cherish because it was my debut. And they always say ‘The first time will always remain in your mind’, so it’s something I’ll always cherish in my mind.

“Before the game (against Ethiopia on Saturday), I anticipated a tough game because international games are always tough but I’ve realised that the experience that I’ve gained when I was playing the CAF Confederations Cup with TS Galaxy, it really played a big role because it prepared me for this type of games.

On the nerves in the opening exchanges, he said;

“The first ten minutes against Ethiopia, I made a couple of mistakes, maybe I had butterflies in my tummy because I made two wrong passes, but immediately after that something told me that ‘I’m now in the game’ , there is no need to panic, I just need to be myself, that’s when I started switching on,” he concluded.

The 23-year-old left-back will be hoping to start again tonight at the FNB Stadium in their return leg, with kickoff pencilled in for 18:H00 South African time.
