Throwback Thursday

TBT – Zwane's Polokwane City Shibobo That Went Worldwide

As football in South Africa nears its resumption, fans will have no doubt missed the flair and skills possessed by some of the finest talents in the PSL. In honour of Mzansi's kasi flavour, we throw it back to when Themba Zwane's nutmeg against Polokwane City made headlines.

Over the course of his career, Zwane has built a reputation for being one of the most skilful players in the PSL.

Highly rated by players and coaches locally, one of his most memorable moments came in an Absa Premiership tie between Mamelodi Sundowns and Polokwane City last season.

While Downs ran out as 2-0 winners on the night, Zwane stole the show with a swift nutmeg of Rise and Shine player Sibusiso Mbonani.

After getting on the end of a through-ball by Lyle Lakay on the left flank, Zwane drew Mbonani in before slipping in a deft shibobo that soon made headlines all around the world.
