Makola vs Shonga – Who Scored The Better Free-Kick?

Orlando Pirates made light work of Seychelles outfit Lightstars in their preliminary CAF Champions League tie with a convincing 5-1 victory. In the game, Mpho Makola and Justin Shonga both scored stunning free-kicks. But who scored the better one?

"Bibo", as Makola is known affectionately known, scored a well-placed free-kick in the 41st minute of the game as Bucs went into the half-time break with a 3-0 advantage.

The Pirates playmaker is known for possessing an educated right peg and would often put himself in line for free-kick duty.

Check out Makola's free-kick!

 

Shonga's name was drafted on to the scoresheet in the 92nd minute courtesy of a free-kick that came from more or less the same distance to that of Makola's effort.

The Bucs attacker showed his dead-ball acumen and neatly put enough dip and curve on the ball for it to sling into the back of the net.

Have a look at Shonga's free-kick!

 

Who do you think scored the better free-kick, Makola or Shonga?
