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.”
