Bidvest Wits attacking midfielder and ‘Man of the Match’ when his team faced Kaizer Chiefs, Paseka Sekese was quick to thank God for scoring his first ever goal with his head.
Sekese headed home a Tebogo Moerane cross in the 58th minute to hand Wits a 2-1 win over the Amakhosi in an Absa Premiership match on Wednesday night.
The 19-year-old came on in the 26th minute for the injured Sibusiso Vilakazi and had a storming game which helped his side hand Chiefs only their third league defeat of the season.
Speaking after the game, Sekese admitted it was his first ever headed goal, but there was no pressure on him to perform.
“I would just like to thank my coach and my teammates for giving me the support,” said Sekese.
“I also want to thank God for the opportunity because I have never scored with a header in my life, so I guess it was God’s work.
“The coach told me to do what I like and to enjoy my football.
“It is not like it was my first game. I am used to these kinds of things, there was pressure but I had to do my best.
“(Scoring against the current league champions) was a bonus.”
