Banyana got back to their sjambok ways and I must say their timing was an inch perfect. Banyana rose to the occasion to beat Algeria 5-1. The match was held at the Independence Stadium in Namibia where Portia Modise made history by being the first African player in a national team to score 100 goals, she became one of the 14 players to ever do that. Modise scored a brace, the three other goals were scored by Amanda Dlamini, Sana Molloa and Mamello Makhabane to book Banyana a spot in the semi-finals. The semi-final clash will be against Nigeria on Wednesday at 5pm, with the final set for Saturday. Banyana know what they have to do, all we have to do is to support them all the way till they lift the trophy on Saturday.
If you bow down with champions does that make you a champion or both of you losers? Either way if you’ve reached that point that others couldn’t reach I guess you’d hear something like “ba zamile, gape semi-final ase thaka ya motho” (they’re given they’re best not everyone could reach a semi-final) now doesn’t that sound like a mediocrity promotional slogan? I guess only Razzmatazz would be able to answer that. The Bulls got spot kicked out of the Currie Cup by Western Province by 31-23, better luck next year boys. The Sharks won’t be able to defend their title as they were humbled by the Lions 50-20. The final is set between the Lions and Western Province on Saturday may the best team win.
It doesn’t look good for the Titans having lost two of their matches against Dolphins and Lions, the latest match against the Knights was a no result match due to a dangerous pitch, you wonder why they didn’t play at Centurion. They are currently languishing at the bottom of the Momentum One Cup log, one can only hope that they’ll start winning when they play against Cobras on Friday afternoon. The Proteas are currently on tour at New Zealand, the first of their third ODI series match will be played at midnight these time-zones though witches won’t be happy. Let the Protea fire burn their voodoo team.
The PSL was back in full swing after the international break, Pretorian teams Supersport and Tuks were made to fight each damn PSL ya lwesa (PSL hates peace), it’s no wonder Tuks scored for Matsatsantsa, the match ended with Supersport winning 3-0. Sundowns played to a goalless draw against Wits who parked a wall according to Pitso. Chiefs is still on fire the team continued with their unbeaten run by beating Ajax 1-0. Pirates had to overturn the Free State Stars bus to win 1-0. Celtic thumped Polokwane City Banyana style (5-1). Swallows were swallowed again this time by Aces 3-2. Maritzburg also beat Dikwena 3-1, while Amazulu PSL’s own braai pack still can’t pick up a win when they were beaten by Chippa 1-0. Before you watch the champion’s league don’t miss the midweek PSL fixtures scheduled for tomorrow (21-10-2014) and Wednesday (22-10-2014).
What do you guys think about this whole Morocco pulling out of hosting AFCON scheduled for January/February 2015 due to the Ebola outbreak? Rumour has it South Africa and Ghana have been shortlisted. Aren’t we tired of being the replacement country? Is it a good idea to host the AFCON with the deadly Ebola unleashed? Should CAF postpone the tournament as Morocco suggested? Nothing has been confirmed though I’m just putting out things we need to consider, have your say.
HAVE A SPORTFUL WEEKEND PRETORIANS!!!
