Winning smile

THE smile on Kaizer Motaung's face said it all: Kaizer Chiefs' win over English giants Manchester City on Saturday was a moment to savour.

THE smile on Kaizer Motaung's face said it all: Kaizer Chiefs' win over English giants Manchester City on Saturday was a moment to savour.

A man of few words, Motaung's mood is difficult to fathom at the best of times.

That his joy was so obvious suggests Chiefs are getting better. Happy days might be around the corner again.

Pundits often say our Premier Soccer League cannot be better than the English Third Division.

So putting one over the richest team in the world, including the likes of Brazilian Robinho and Togo's Emmanuel Adebayor, is no small feat.

Orlando Pirates were the first to raise Mzansi's flag with a 2-0 win over City.

OK, City were jet lagged. For us, Chiefs and Pirates were a shining advert for 2010.

They also raised our hopes that Bafana too can punch above their weight in the World Cup.
