Tembu Royals striker Mafokeng aims for Nedbank quarters

Tembu Royals striker Sechaba Mofekeng told Goal.com that he is hoping to score more goals in the Nedbank so that his club could reach the quarter finals

Mofekeng scored the brilliant, opening goal for Royals when they eliminated Usuthu 2-1 on Wednesday, and he said he wants to score more goals during this tournament, irrespective of the opposition they will be playing against. Royals take on Maritzburg in the last 16 round.

 “From the first whistle, I knew that I was going to score and indeed it happened. I had visualised myself scoring. I also spent time in training practising the finishing and my celebration,” said Mofekeng.

The 24-year-old Mofekeng said it was his first time playing against a PSL team, so he knew that he had to depend on his teammates for the supply and support. He said playing against AmaZulu was a dream come true for him.

“I have always dreamed of playing against a PSL team, so when that opportunity came in, I knew that I had to utilize it. What made it easy for us to beat AmaZulu, as we knew how they play. We watch the PSL matches almost every weekend and weekdays, and they didn’t really know what to expect from us. That is why we just decided to press them hard from the first whistle before they could catch up with us,” he said.

Mofekeng's goal is to finish as one of the leading strikers and hopefully get a contract with one of the PSL teams.

“I wouldn’t mind playing for any team in the PSL. I know the focus is still on us qualifying to National First Division, but I would personally love to play in this level soon. The only way I can prove my worth is by scoring goals. I do wish that we can meet some of the big clubs again because playing and scoring against them gives one a lot of exposure,” he said.
