Throwback Thursday

TBT: Lorch's Nile-Splitting Performance Against Egypt

With Bafana Bafana preparing to face Mali this weekend, we throw it back to what was one of South Africa's finest performances in recent years, their 1-0 win over Egypt at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Check it out!

In a game when the likes of Percy Tau and Sifiso Hlanti shined, it was Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch who was the difference in the round of 16 clash.

'Moses' Arrives On The Big Stage

During the group stage of the tournament, there was a call from fans to include Lorch in Bafana's starting XI, and former Mzansi coach Stuart Baxter subsequently caved in as a result.

To see some of the memories from that game, scroll through the gallery above!

Thrown into the starting line-up against the Pharaohs, Lorch earned the nickname "Moses" after his goal ensured that South Africa progressed to the quarter-finals at the Egyptians' expense.
