PSL fails to emulate the teenagers on a tedious day in the domestic football league

On a day when the SA under-20 side qualified for the youth Soccer World Cup through a four-goal thriller‚ only one goal was scored in the domestic premiership.

SA beat Sudan 3-1 in Lusaka on Sunday to set up a date with hosts Zambia and also qualify for the Fifa youth World Cup in South Korea later this year in a day of drama on Sunday.

Mothobi Mvala scored the only goal of the day in the domestic league as beleaguered Highlands Park coach Gordon Igensund's side managed to beat equally limping Free State Stars 1-0 at Goble Park in a yawn fest of a relegation tussle at home on Sunday.

In another game‚ ailing Baroka FC could only manage a 0-0 draw against rivals Polokwane City.

Unless the premiership basement side somehow manages to pull off an escape akin to Houdini at his best‚ eccentric coach Kgoloko Thobejane's Baroka charges will be permanent guests of the lower tier in three months time. - TMG Digital
