Josephs joined Bafana a few days prior to the tournament, and he was called to face Nigeria after it was confirmed Khune will miss the clash due to an ankle injury
Josephs conceded a penalty on the day to hand Nigeria the second goal, and Mbalula believes that the Western Cape-born shot-stopper should have done better.
“That goalkeeper [Moeneeb Josephs], he was playing with the team, but he added up a whole lot of mess,” Mbalula told reporters at the Cape Town Stadium.
“The second goal... the goalkeeper commits a penalty, alone, single-handedly, and without being assisted by anybody.
“I love Moeneeb Josephs but I don't know what was going on with him yesterday. That is a total disgrace, a performance like that,” he said.
Mbalula added that he’s still speechless, and cannot talk to any of the players as he was hoping for a better performance against the second string Nigerian side.
“I saw outside, people were lining up to greet them (Bafana Bafana). I'll never greet them. I did not even go to the dressing room. I did not even call them. To me, that was a disaster,” said Mbalula.
