3 TALK­ING POINTS: BAFANA V SEY­CHELLES

Sunday Tribune - - SPORT - Ma­zola Molefe

Although not in­volved too much in the game, striker Lebo Moth­iba made it three goals in as many matches for Bafana with his goal at FNB Sta­dium yes­ter­day.

The France-based for­ward made his de­but for the na­tional team back in March dur­ing the Four Na­tions tour­na­ment in Zam­bia, and helped Bafana win the com­pe­ti­tion.

This was his first ma­jor qual­i­fier, and to get a goal can only build his con­fi­dence at this level.

With Kea­gan Dolly un­avail­able due to in­jury, hav­ing started the pre­vi­ous qual­i­fier against Libya last month, Aubrey Modiba took his place and made an ar­gu­ment why he should be con­sid­ered on the left side of mid­field more of­ten.

Like his nick­name “Post­man”, he was de­liv­er­ing, set­ting up cap­tain Thulani Hlatshwayo for the sec­ond Bafana goal.

3.

South Africa man­aged to record their big­gest ever win, over­tak­ing the 5-0 vic­tory over Gu­atemala in the lead-up to the World Cup on home soil eight years ago.

A ruth­less Bafana showed Sey­chelles no mercy to run riot, send­ing a state­ment to the con­ti­nent’s minnows – some­thing which they have failed to do in the past.
