Bafana Crowned COSAFA Cup Plate Champions

COSAFA Cup Plate Final Report: Bafana Bafana v Namibia 07 July 2017

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 07, 2017 06:51 PM
COSAFA Cup Plate Final
 
Result: South Africa 1-0 Namibia
 
Date: 07 July 2017
 
Venue: Moruleng Stadium
 
Bafana Bafana were crowned winners in the COSAFA Cup Plate section after defeating Namibia 1-0 in the final on Friday evening.
 
The Namibians were awarded a penalty after four minutes. Ketjijere stepped up to take the penalty but dragged his effort wide of the upright.
 
Bafana struggled to get settled in the opening 15 minutes and were restricted to efforts from distance.
 
Namibia should have broken the deadlock after 17 minutes but Katjiteo somehow side-footed his effort wide of the upright.
 
However, it was Bafana who broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when Mohau Mokate's long range effort took a deflection and sailed into the back of the net.
 
The hosts were then dealt a blow just before the break when Thendo Mukumela limped off. He was replaced by Sandile Mthethwa.
 
Bafana had a chance to double their lead in the 55th minute but Judas Moseamedi failed to beat Maximilian Mbaeva, who was way off his line.
 
Namibia responded with a change in the 63rd as Highlands Park's Peter Shalulile was introduced as they pushed for an equaliser.
 
The Namibians went agonisingly close to leveling matters in the 76th minutes but Haoaseb's looping crashed onto the crossbar with Pule well beaten.
 
Boalefa Pule came to Bafana's rescue in stoppage time, as he produced a fine save to deny Namibia an equaliser in the final stages of stoppage time.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
 
Bafana: Pule (GK), Mukumela, Malepe, Booysen, Gordinho, Mvala, Masalesa (C), Norodien, Sibiya, Mokate, Moseamedi.
 
Namibia: Mbaeva, Haoseb, Hanaumb, Karongee, Horaeb, Hotto, Ketjijere, Katjiteo, Gome, Keimune, Shitembi.

Jali was 22yrs when he operated the central midfield of my Bucs and it is when we won the first treble.All Pirates players were signed because they are good enough to play for the team.Why you must be over 30s to be in the line up Mr Jonevret? And why are you doubting them now because they are young and new in the team? Pirates have players and they must all be used not only 11 that you play Mr Kjell'Copy&Paste'Jonevret. Change the line-up if its doesn't live to your expectations. Give young blood a chance and new players an opportunity to start shining than those who are already shone long time.Stop signing new players ,not playing them and next season they are loaned.

Mbulelo Mabizela was 22yrs old n captained my team to the cup victory,He remains the youngest captain ever to captain the team to the victory.We also want to see Malepe n Mthethwa getting 20 or more PSL games, Kjell'copy & paste'Jonevret give these boys gametime.Its not about age,its about footbrain that makes a gud player as for experience you get it through playing. Have belief n hope in these boys, they will make you a better coach.We tired of Jeles n Gcabas now.We need young blood to take us to the promise land.

What a young talented defender,Sandile"BALLY"Mthethw a is the next big thing for Mzantsi,I wish Orlando Pirates Coach can give him Needable game time,otherwise this players is one of those who will keep vision 2022,on track yhoo what a Centre-back,I can say Sandile Mthethwa is the next Roooooo for Mzantsi let's give him time I have saw all these youngsters such as Rivaldo Coetzee,Gordinho Malepe,Madisha and e.t.c.So far Sandile Mthethwa has impressed me more than them.
