In this edition of #ThrowbackThursday we look at the time Mzansi’s mercurial midfielder Thulani Serero put the mighty Barcelona to the sword while still on the books of Dutch giants, Ajax Amsterdam.
It was a moment in his career that the 29-year-old will never forget.
He came up against a Barcelona team in the 2013/14 edition of the UEFA Champions League, which consisted of superstars Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta among others.
The Soweto-born man however, was unfazed by the occasion and made a telling contribution in their 2-1 win when he snuck in at the far post to tap home a cross, silencing the Barca fans in the process.
Watch it here:
Serero, who these days plies his trade for UAE side Al Jazira, unfortunately could not help Ajax beat AC Milan in the final group game and they were subsequently eliminated from the group stages of the competition.
It is surely a #throwback Mzansi fans will remember for decades to come.
Do you remember Serero’s goal against the mighty Barcelona?
