Bafana's Man of The Match Bemoans Missed Chances

Bafana Bafana midfielder Fortune Makaringe bemoaned his side's missed chances after they were bundled out of the COSAFA Cup.

South Africa had numerous chances to score in their quarter-final match against Madagascar on Sunday afternoon, but they were made to pay for their wastefulness as the 90 minutes ended goalless.

Penalty misses from Jamie Webber and Luther Singh then saw Bafana lose 4-3 to Madagascar in the shootout as Bafana were sent packing and will now go into the plate semi-finals of the competition.

Makaringe, himself, was superb on the day, with a solid performance in the centre of the midfield and was rightfully handed the ‘man of the match’ award.

The loss was a bitter pill for Makaringe to swallow, but he does not feel his team played badly on the day.

“I think we played very well as a team, but as a collective, we just couldn’t convert our chances,” Makaringe told SuperSport after the game.

“It is unfortunate that we lost the game in a penalty shootout.

“But that is Football, and football is football.

“It doesn’t matter who you play with. If you master your basics and stick to what instruction you were given by the coach you will be successful.

“At the end of the day, you are all playing football. It’s the same thing.”

Bafana will next be in action against Namibia in the plate semifinals of the COSAFA Cup on Tuesday, June 5.
