“Look, I don’t want to say more. Mazembe were defeated fairly. We dominated and what I’m happy about is that this is one medal I needed to complete in Africa, if I have this then I’m happy, then I can start the new cycle,” Mosimane said post-match.
“There is no dispute in this game. We dominated Mazembe, and closed down Rainford Kalaba, we closed down Solomon Asante, we made sure that Nathan Sankala doesn’t bring the ball back easy, we stole the ball from (Daniel Nii) Adjei. We were unbelievable, what a night!,” Mosimane said.
The goal came from Brazilian defender Ricardo Nascimento's late penalty late after captain Hlompho Kekana was brought down inside the box.
Mosimane believes Egyptian referee Ghead Grisha made the right call by awarding the penalty as Kekana was clearly fouled.
“It was a penalty, and also Anthony (Laffor) could have scored the other time. He gave me a heart-attack, but I’m back,” Mosimane said.
The Kagiso-born mentor claims that he always knew that they would eventually score.
“We were a little bit nervous in front of goal, but I knew the goal would come. They had to crack. We dominated,” Mosimane concluded.
