The 20-year-old came on to replace Bernard Parker in the 77th minute of Sunday’s encounter at FNB Stadium, scoring what looked to be the winning goal before Knox Mutizwa’s late equaliser.
Moon became the 15th Amakhosi to find the back of the net in the Absa Premiership so far this season and he will be hoping that it is one of many for the club.
Speaking of the goal, the former Maritzburg United man told Chiefs’ website, “That was a great feeling. I want to thank God and coach Steve Komphela for giving me this opportunity. We are always talking about attacking the line and that’s what I did.
“A million things went through my mind – to run, to dive on the grass, to take the jersey off, it was wonderful.”
According to Chiefs, the forward predicted his goal, telling team manager, Gerald Sibeko, before the game, “If given a chance to play, I will score.”
“I am a man of my word,” he said.
Meanwhile, his head coach set him aside for praise, saying, “To play in the Absa Premiership you have to be brave. To be able to play for Kaizer Chiefs you need to develop a crust beyond brave. I am very happy for Ryan.”
