Mzansi vs The World


It’s 'Mzansi vs The World Monday', where Soccer-Laduma gives you the opportunity to compare a South African football moment to that of the rest of the world, and vote on which you believe is the best. 

This week it’s time to look at two left-footed screamers from outside the box. The first by Thabo Matlaba for Orlando Pirates in the past weekend’s MTN8 final and the second by Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski last season.

Thabo Matlaba – Orlando Pirates (v Platinum Stars)

This cracker from Matlaba restored parity for Pirates in the dying moments of the game as he smashed his effort past Siyabonda Mpontshane from range. However they went on to lose the game on penalties. 

Lukas Podolski – Arsenal (v West Ham)

Podolski’s effort, also from range with his left, wasn’t quite as important as Matlaba’s, and was just one of the goals as Arsenal went on to thump West Ham United 5-1.
