BELIEVE THE HYPE

It was a weekend of mixed results for SA players plying their trade abroad.

Kamohelo Mokotjo

It was a weekend to remember for ‘Kamo’ as he put in a Man-of-the-Match performance to guide Brentford FC to a resounding 4-2 victory over Rotherham United in the English Championship.

The 27-year-old Bafana Bafana midfielder bagged his first career brace to secure a big away victory for the Bees.

Lebo Mothiba

The Bafana Bafana striker was an unused substitute as he slowly works his way back from injury.

RC Strasbourg completed a double over Thierry Henry’s Monaco side with a 5-1 thrashing which leaves them fifth in Ligue 1 after 21 games.

Percy Tau

Tau found himself back in the starting lineup following his visa issues, and put in a stellar 90-minute performance as Belgian second-tier club Saint Gilloise beat Leuven 2-1, to stay third on the log after eight games in period two of the division.

Kurt Abrahams

Abrahams’ Belgian club Westerlo played out to a 1-1 draw with Beerschot-Wilrijk, and remained unmoved in seventh spot on the log after eight games in period two of the Belgian second tier.

Lars Veldwijk

Despite not getting on the scoresheet this time around, the forgotten Bafana Bafana man bagged an assist for his Dutch second-tier club Sparta Rotterdam in their scintillating 2-2 draw with Roda JC.

Kyle Jacobs

Jacobs featured for Queen of the South in their 1-1 draw with Dundee in their fourth round FA Cup clash. His team will now have home ground advantage when they play a replay to determine which side will progress to the next round.

Mihlali Mayambela

Mayambela started the match but was substituted in stoppage time as his second-tier Portuguese club Farense played out to a 0-0 draw with Famalicao.

Siphiwe Tshabalala

‘Shabba’ watched from the bench as his Turkish Superlig outfit Erzurumspor suffered their first defeat of 2019 with a narrow 2-1 loss to Konyaspor, leaving them in the relegation zone in 16th spot after 18 games.

Thulani Serero

‘Cream’ featured the entire 90 minutes for Vitesse Arnhem as they went down 3-2 to Excelsior in the Dutch Eredivisie, leaving them fourth on the log after 18 games.

Keaghan Jacobs

Despite completing another 90 minutes, Jacobs could not help Livingston as they were dumped out of the FA Cup following a 1-0 loss to Hearts.

Luther Singh

Singh made his fourth start for his new club Chaves but could only watch on as they were thrashed 4-1 by Portuguese giants Porto.

Lebogang Phiri

Phiri’s Ligue 1 outfit Guingamp was on the receiving end as they were hammered 9-0 by champions PSG, which was sweet revenge for the table-toppers who were dumped by the former out of the Coupe de la Ligue cup earlier this month.
