Tsakane’s ABC Motsepe League side, African All Stars or ‘Amazozo’, as they are affectionately known, were held to a 1-all draw by Leruma United from Daveyton in the two teams’ first league match of the season on Friday night (8 September 2017).
All Stars dominated from the beginning of the match, which is why they were the ones to open the scoring, via right back Bongani ‘Cafu’ Nyambi’s header. That would be their only goal, though, as they failed to cut open Leruma’s resolute defence for more than 45 second half minutes.
And they were made to pay for their inability to force the second goal in, as United scored the equalizer in the dying minutes to steal a draw in the Ekurhuleni derby.
All Stars coach, Mhleli Xaba afterwards said he was happy with his team’s effort, though he wished they could have bagged all 3 points at home.
