The 23-year-old forward who was on parade for 90 minutes, doubled Strasbourg's lead just before half-time and later sealed their win with his 85th-minute effort.

The game was Mothiba's 12th outing in the French top-flight this season and his contribution steered the Stade de la Meinau outfit out of the relegation zone to 16th spot on the log with 15 points after 13 matches.

The South African attacker will be hoping to replicate his form when Bafana Bafana battle Ghana and Sudan in next week's 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures.
