South Africa neglected to score any objectives from open play in their 2-0 success against Sao Tome and Principe at the Moses Mabhida Stadium
Unbelievable Bafana midfielder Doctor Khumalo says it’s concerning South Africa didn’t present to a greater degree a danger to the Sao Tome and Principe guard on Friday night.
Bafana ran out 2-0 victors, because of second half objectives from Percy Tau and Bongani Zungu, in their Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
The home side anyway were unconvincing and generally didn’t excessively inconvenience the Sao Tome and Principe back-line.
Sao Tome and Principe, positioned 182nd on the planet – 110 places underneath Bafana, surely made South Africa buckle down for triumph. What’s more, in the end the hosts needed to depend on a punishment (Tau) and a set-piece objective (Zungu scored with a header from a corner directly toward the finish of the game) to see them to greatest focuses.
“We are discussing a player that pre-owned individual brightness, in light of the fact that plainly we weren’t resembling a group that planned to score,” Khumalo said during a post-coordinate conversation in the SABC studio. “However, he (Tau) constrained a foul inside the container and we were granted [a penalty] and afterward he scored it.”
While Bafana improved their presentation in the last 25 minutes of the match, the opening 45 minutes had seen the meeting side having the better of the assaulting details.
“No desire to move quickly and no strategic control. They (Sao Tome and Principe) had a larger number of sections inside the case than we,” Khumalo said at the break.
Individual expert and previous Orlando Pirates striker, Phumudzo Manenzhe, likewise censured South Africa’s first half appearing.
“Single word to portray Bafana’s exhibition in the primary half – disconnected,” he said. “No familiarity with the assault going ahead. They were not smaller at the back. You are taking a gander at a Sao Tome group, who had more possibilities on objective (first half). Bafana just two shots, zero on track, playing at home against a low positioning group.”
Bafana will meet Sao Tome and Principe for the second time when they conflict in Port Elizabeth on Monday evening.
