Qalinge's Stepover Skills Video Surfaces On Major European Media Outlets

"When you press random buttons on FIFA" was just one of the phrases used to describe Thabo Qalinge's stepover skills that had most South African football fans talking, and publications in Europe have since latched on to the discussions on social media. Have you seen it?

Pirates faced Polokwane City on the final day of the 2018/19 Absa Premiership season, and ran out as 3-0 winners in what was a spirited performance from the Soweto giants.

With Bucs effectively losing the league title on the last day, Qalinge took it upon himself to entertain fans with a few stepovers, and he certainly got the crowd buzzing.

Check it out:

While videos of his skilful play made the rounds on South African social media, it didn't take long before European publications reported about it.

Mail Online Sport, which has, in fact, reported on previous "showboating' moves from the man known as "Section 10", was one of the first to do so, while other media houses such as AS English and Sport Bible also weighed in on the matter.

Have a look!

Even a media outlet in Asia had its say:

What are your thoughts on Qalinge's stepover skill in the match?
