Cardoso Critical Of Chiefs' Nedbank Cup Win

Kaizer Chiefs defender Daniel Cardoso was disappointed with how they allowed Stellenbosch FC to score in their Nedbank Cup round of 16 tie.

Chiefs survived a late scare against Stellenbosch to book a spot in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals with a 2-1 victory at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The win came thanks to goals in either half from Eric Mathoho and Leonardo Castro despite the best efforts of Alan Robertson with a late reply.

“We could have defended it better. We knew it was going to come in at the near post. It was just a lucky flick from one of their defenders and we didn’t get it in front of it on time, but we have to go back and correct it,” Cardoso told SuperSport after the game.

What also displeased the hard-tackling defender is the manner in which they engaged possession particularly towards the closing stages.

“We went into the final third very l tonight. We just lost the ball at the wrong times tonight. We could have been holding them at the corner, but we kept on losing the ball at the wrong time.

“So next time we have to try and keep the ball longer and hold it up in the corner a lot of time,” he explained.

Cardosso is presently a best defender for Chiefs followed by Radebe and Mathoho,I think Ngezana still needs to learn so he can be best as well

Now that FAU won, Cardoso is a star. Once FAU got moered, we will read that Gordinho should have stayed and Cardoso gone. Hehe hehe hehe.....Those are FAU's fans for you. I will save this comment as re-post it after FAU suffered a sjambok.

In football you can defend whole 90 minutes but if your strikers dont score you become useless

DC is our best center back at the moment, I respect his efforts.
