Erwin Isaacs earns Santos a point against Ajax

Posted: 15 October 2010 Time: 21:39

Santos grabbed an injury-time equaliser against Ajax to ensure a 1-1 draw in a hard-fought derby at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday night.

The first half saw very little in the way of chances, although as the half progressed it was Santos who made more of the play.

This resulted in half -hances for the likes of Sekou Camara and Graham King, but neither caused any problems for Hans Vonk.

It appeared as if a 0-0 score-line was on the cards at half-time, but just before the break the Urban Warriors took the lead when Terror Fanteni scored from the spot after Wayne Arendse had fouled Thulani Serero.

Ajax were for the most part on top in the second half and were close to a second when Fanteni’s clever chip hit the upright.

Santos goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng was certainly the busier, having to make several saves and gather several crosses, while on one occasion he was bailed out by Jurie Basie’s goal-line clearance.

He also made excellent saves from Sameegh Doutie’s well-struck 20-yard shot and an 84th-minute free-kick from Serero.

Musa Otieno missed a late guilt-edged chance when he blasted over from the edge of the area.

And then a late charge by Santos resulted in Santos earning a penalty after Brett Evans pulled back Romano Scott.

Erwin Isaacs’ penalty was saved by Vonk, but he was on hand to score from the rebound.

Enjoyable game but so disappointing that Ajax let it slip at the end. They certainly made all the plays in the second half with Serero busy as a bee and some good shots on target. Santos 'keeper Motsoeneng really earned his salary today with good saves in the second half. The goals were scored in the dying minutes of each half, both from penalties and at the same end of the magnificent Cape Town stadium. While we were expecting a 2nd Ajax goal, the opposite became reality. Congrats to the Ajax management for persevering with The Stadium, for their marketing, the cheerleaders were great and although it was not a sellout crowd, it was nonetheless quite enjoyable. Band in the crowd also was welcome instead of just having vuvuzelas blaring. Ajax play an exciting brand of soccer and will go far this season.

Caf chief Hayatou out of hospital

Issa Hayatou's health has been a source of concern in recent years
Issa Hayatou, the president of the Confederation of African Football (Caf), has left hospital after his collapse at a conference in Cairo.

The 64-year-old felt unwell on Thursday evening and was taken to hospital in the Egyptian capital for tests.

He was kept in overnight for observation.

"The condition of Hayatou is very good," Caf media director Suleiman Habuba told the BBC on Friday. "He was released today just after midday."

Habuba said Hayatou's collapse was because of stress and fatigue after the 'big effort' he had made in the last few days to prepare for the World Cup conference.

Football officials from both Fifa and Caf have been meeting at the latter's headquarters in Cairo to analyse the 2010 World Cup, the first finals to ever be staged on African soil.

"Last night, he was chatting with Fifa and Caf officials over coffee at around nine in the evening when he told them he wasn't feeling well," Habuba told the BBC.

"He was immediately taken to hospital and admitted, but was released today at 12.15."

According to Habuba, Hayatou may still attend the conference's closing ceremony later on Friday but this is still uncertain.

Hayatou, a Cameroonian national, has been Caf president for 23 years - but his health has often been a source of concern in recent years.

The Caf president is also a Fifa vice-president and was a member of the World Cup organizing committee

It was a good game and good attendance from the people of Cape Town. You can do better though with the attendance.

I was disappointed with Santos' approach to the game. They relied more on counter with a target player like Camara, that wont work. Camara looked completely ineffective in that system. Maar coaches kill players you know. Ajax should have burried Santos alive, but I was happy with the draw because thats what I predicted.

Fanteni's finishing was very poor although he worked hard and positioned himself well to get those chances. Serero is promising to be a very good player. but he was playing too deep.
