Mashaba warned Bafana Bafana About Musa


Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba, said he warned his team about Ahmed Musa before the game during which the CSKA Moscow striker scored a brilliant goal five minutes before time.

Bafana Bafana needed a stoppage-time strike from Bongani Zungu to cancel Ahmed Musa’s goal in the 85th minute during Sunday’s international friendly in Nelspruit.

I said to the players before the game, there’s this Musa – number 7 – don’t give him an area where he faces goals, because he will punish us” He said in an after-match interview.

We had him in the first half and he was nowhere; we had him for some time in the second half.

“When he started playing, he always comes in from the flanks and he did it tonight, he’s a very, very good curler of the ball.

“You could see when his foot hit the ball that it was going to cause problems for the goalkeeper.”
