Masinga: The Keeper Saved Costa Rica

After beating Costa Rica 1-0 on Friday morning with a lack of out-and-out strikers in the team, former Bafana Bafana forward Phil Masinga believes that the system the coach used helped them overcome the problem.

Masinga says that coach Shakes Mashaba opted to employ an attaching system, which led to increased chances, and was happy to see it pay off.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns striker felt that the team put in a good performance and believes that they had the chance to have scored even more.

"From the start the team was attacking if you look at the way the team was selected. They had more in the midfield and that gave them more chances in the attack, while they defended with the four defenders,” he told Soccer Laduma.

“The system the coach used was an attacking system and it worked. They could have scored even more goals but their goalkeeper (Keylor Navas) saved them," Masinga concluded.
