WE HAD SO MANY CHANCES - ‘CRUISER’

By Colisile Sacolo | 2019-09-11

SOCCER - MINISTER of Tikhundla Administration and Regional Development David ‘Cruiser’ Ngcamphalala says the national team had so many chances to score goals and win the 2022 World Cup Qualifier match against Djibouti.

‘Cruiser’ was speaking on behalf of Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth affairs Harris ‘Madze’ Bulunga, who is in Madagascar.

Interviewed after the match against Djibouti played at Mavuso Sport Centre yesterday, Ngcamphalala said the team played well but failed to score the needed goal. He said if you don’t score during a football match you get punished and that is what happened to our national team.

"We hope the team will do their level best in the next coming game against Zambia in the CHAN tournament," he said He further stated that the coach and the players did everything on the day and they were just unlucky not to win the match. “There is no one to blame here. I just think it was not our day.” Meanwhile, Eswatini Football Association CEO Frederick Mngomezulu said the team played very well but it’s only that they were unlucky on the day as they failed to score goals despite the numerous opportunities they created.

He said the team still had two more competitions where they could rectify their mistakes."We still have a chance to qualify for the CHAN finals. It’s not easy but we hope we will do better in the remaining tournaments.”
