Kaizer Chiefs’ George Lebese scored two goals in the dying minutes of the game to beat SuperSport United 2-0 in a Nedbank Cup quarterfinal at FNB Stadum on Saturday, and he confesses that he has been working on his finishing.
The attacking midfielder scored to fantastic goals with either foot to seal the win and added that he was not disheartened by missing chances early on in the match.
“We worked hard at training and I’ve also worked on my finishing, and today it has paid off,” said Lebese.
“It never looked like it was going to pay off, I missed the first chance when I was one-on-one with the keeper, but I never dropped my head.
“The coach always says it only takes a second to score a goal and it paid off today.”
Lebese admits that his side were growing increasingly worried as the game went on and they had not yet broken the deadlock despite their dominance.
“We were getting a little bit worried because in the last two games we conceded goals in the dire minutes when we dominated the whole match, but today at least we won the game,” added Lebese.
“The fans must keep supporting us, no one walks onto the field wanting to lose and at the end of the day we also feel the pain they feel if we lose.”
