This is how South African soccer fans and the media reacted, receiving plaudits from supporters of rival clubs too.
That's just how good the shibobo was. What did you think of Zwane's moment?

That Themba Zwane touch is a disgrace. Should be arrested for that kind of assault.— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) August 7, 2018
What stands out for me here is not Themba Zwane's shibobo for Sundowns, but that after all the amazing skill, he somehow managed to misplace an easy assist pass which is much more important @Masandawana. There's been some cracking highlights in the PSL already in just a week https://t.co/N2F3sRVch5— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) August 8, 2018
