The MTN8 Was Like Watching A Wrestling Match! - Reader's Voice
The opening match of the MTN8 between defending champions Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows was action-packed.
Unusual stuff happened, with three coaches having been sent off, three players getting red cards, four goals scored as if that was not enough to disgust, the match went all the way to the wire where Wits won by way of a penalty shoot-out.
Watching the match was like a watching a wrestling match!
Flying kicks, dangerous tackles, head collisions, serious injuries, fights on the pitch. Literally, it was a rough one.
The match between Arrows and Wits will go down history as the roughest match in the MTN8 competition.
However the game of football was amazing, it had everything, it literally kept one on their toes and we appreciate the effort shown by Wits and Arrows.
If this was a start, I cannot wait to see where we going. To the rest of the teams who are to play in the semi-finals, bring on more goals!
