Bafana Bafana pulled off a stunning upset victory this weekend over African giants Senegal at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. The game did require a good pinch of fortune as the referee incorrectly awarded a penalty to South Africa to help them to their 2-1 victory. The supporters do not seem to mind too much…
“Not convinced by the win but will take it. Shakes why did you play Komphela style mara? I wasn't in the dressing room but I can tell you told the players to defend. If in this day and time we still defend two goals, we still have a long way to go.” – Khosi Da Man
“That was a win that came on silver platter from the referee. let's wait and see the second leg in Dakar.” – GerdMuller
“When you are outside country you going to be treated by referee the same way. And don’t ever think they will feel sorry for your theories
“We were in Mokaba supporting the team we celebrated every goal either pen or free-kick. Just like any other country will do.
“For me, personally I want to see results, the way they get those results I don’t worry. Just like when they loose! Either its because of ref, coach or certain player.” - Kgwara
“Guys are talking of fair play where was fair play when Zamalek bullied us with lasers FIFA must go and fix CAF before jumping the bus to AFCON.” – Fortune Sundowns
“I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Ghanaian ref and before he departs for his homeland he must pass by Nkandla to get a "drink" and he must no worry about the public protector she's fine with it. well done Mr Ref, with refs like u the sky is the limit for Bafana now no more draws and loses keep up the good work Mr. Ref and if you want citizenship no problem especially with the way u ref even Bobby is considering for u to ref in the PSL to bring back the #glorydays” – ritchit yanga 13
It seems that after months of bad luck, a bit of help from the referee is greatly appreciated by the supporters.
