Isaacs v Robben - Mzansi vs The World
It’s ‘Mzansi vs the World’ again, the feature where we compare a special PSL moment with a similar moment from world football.
Alright, we know it’s Friday, but seeing as everybody was on holiday yesterday, we thought we’d move it to Friday this week.
This time around we’re taking a look at a pearler from Wits man, Erwin Isaacs, during his time at Santos, and comparing it with a similar goal from Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben.
The Capetonian was one of the only good things to come out of Santos in the 2011/12 season as the club got relegated from the PSL, and even this goal proved to be nothing more than a consolation as they lost 4-1.
This delightful goal from the Dutchman proved to be the winner as Bayern beat Dortmund 1-0 on the night in the DFB Pokal, later going on to win the cup a few months later.
Check out Mzansi vs The World next week, on Thursday once more, for another tough comparison.
