Chiefs crush AmaZulu

Kaizer Chiefs hammer AmaZulu

Posted: 11 August 2012 Time: 08:09 pm

Bernard Parker scored four goals as Kaizer Chiefs got their Premiership campaign off to a flying start with a 6-0 win over AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.

Both sides started the game slowly and showed signs of rustiness as they lost possession easily in the middle of the park.

From the 26th minute onwards Stuart Baxter’s men seemed to go up a gear as they started to dominate the midfield and Siphiwe Tshabalala went on a great run and received the ball back from Nkhatha, but his shot was parried away by Kapini.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 38th minute as Josta Dladla cut in from the right before finding Parker just outside the box and he showed composure as he stepped away from Tsweu Mokoro before placing his low shot past Kapini.

The lead was extended just three minutes later as Erick Mathoho connected with a corner from Siphiwe Tshabalala but saw his header tipped onto the crossbar; however, Nkhatha was the quickest man to react as he volleyed the ball into the back of the net, 2-0.

Parker then had a great chance on the stroke of half-time as he received a low cross from Josta Dladla, but the former FC Twente player sent his effort over the crossbar.

Then in the 57th minute Chiefs stretched their lead as Parker received a pass from Reneilwe Letsholonyane on the right before firing past Kapini at the near post.

Parker grabbed his hat-trick in the 65th minute as he received another pass from Letsholonyane on the right and cut inside before curling the ball into the net at the far post using his left foot.

Seven minutes later Parker scored his fourth goal of the match as he received a pass from Nkosi inside the box and showed his international experience as he beat Kapini with a neat chip.

Despite their strongest efforts AmaZulu were unable to get past the Chiefs defence which showed great improvement from the side which lost 4-1 against Sundowns in a Cup game last weekend.

The demolition was completed in the 90th minute as Parker turned from scorer to provider as he cut the ball across for Nkosi to beat Kapini with a well-taken right-footed shot.

Good for chiefs. Six is a good half dozen! Pierates must be concerned. Sundowns was lucky to win so big last week. Khosi is rising. But then UP THE BUCS FOREVER. ...CHIEFS FOR NEVER!

Congratulations boys. I'm happy today, u made my day. Today I was reading all the nasty comments from our neighbors and this people can talk.

BUT, my fellow Khosi....unlike them, let's celebrate our victory without insulting them, let's not scoop to their level. Let's not get carried away as well. There's still a lot of work ahead.

Thanking you Makhosi.

Nice come back Khosi, against a smaller team that dis-organised. Did they forgot they are out of the MTN8. NNow Khosi is ricing againt, just like last season where they won the league after 5 games.

What a way for mazamban' to bounce back... some really great goals from Bernard, it's unlikely but I sincerely hope he can continue showing that sort of world-class composure...

But let's not FOURget "...that which glitters is not gold..."

We have witnessed mazambane hammering teams (Leopards last season & Ajax the season before) only for their their inferiority complexes to show their ugly head thus causing them to be inconsistent...

But for Bernard I sincerely hope this is not a fluke... but I suspect that it is....

Now they play to redeem themselvs, Wait until they play stronger oppositions. Baxter will be gone before 5 games. Asking Parker to keep scoring is the same as asking Jacob Zuma to write his own speech.
