Sabi scoops U17 Man of the Match at COSAFA
An excellent performance from Seabata Tsemane in the COSAFA Region 5 Maseru tournament earned him a ‘Player of the Match’ accolade as Lesotho shared the 1-1 spoils with Eswatini on Monday afternoon at Setsoto Stadium.
The talented left-footed Kick4Life Academy player unleashed a grounder in the second half to level matters and rescue a point for Lesotho.
Speaking after the match, Sabi, as his teammates call him, expressed that hard work and team effort contributed to his performance: “It was a team work, we supported each other, we wanted to win this match but unfortunately things did not go as we had hoped. It was a tough game, we managed to create chances, and we just needed to be clinical upfront. I am happy with the goal I scored although we have been eliminated from the tournament”.
Lesotho needed to win against Eswatini in order to stay in the tournament after going 2-0 down against Zambia in the first match. Tsemane played both matches fully.
