Kaizer Chiefs slump to Santos defeat

Posted: 10 November 2010 Time: 21:30

Kaizer Chiefs’ unbeaten record in the Absa Premiership came to a surprise end at the Rand Stadium on Wednesday evening as they lost 1-0 to Santos.

The People’s Team deployed a conservative approach for much of the match, but stole the points on with a late goal from Sekou Camara.

The first half produced little in the way of goalmouth action or scoring chances, though Chiefs came closest to breaking the deadlock when Siphiwe Tshabalala rattled the crossbar with a 20-metre free-kick in the 15th minute.

Reneilwe Letsholonyane was the main orchestrator in midfield for Chiefs and wasn’t afraid to try his luck with long-range shots, such as in the 35th minute when he fired a low, left-footed effort just wide.

As the first half began to wind down, Santos slowly began to come to life, though the most they could offer in attack was a Tyren Arendse shot that flashed wide of Itumeleng Khune’s left-hand upright.

In the second half Santos upped their game significantly, looking a lot more composed and comfortable.

Yet it was still Chiefs who were creating the better opportunities and Letsholonyane twice came close with long-range shots, stinging the palms of Tshepo Motsoeneng in the 76th minute and firing a fierce effort just wide less than 60 seconds later.

On 85 minutes a Santos counter-attack produced the best scoring chance of the game, but Graham King fired wide of the target with only Khune to beat, though the keeper deserved credit for rushing off his line to put the midfielder under pressure.

Yet if Santos thought their time to win the game had passed, they were wrong. Just two minutes later a corner-kick routine saw Musa Otieno head back across the penalty area from the far post and, after Chiefs had failed to clear the ball, Camara pounced to score the winning goal with a powerful header.

YOu Pierats fans are morons. Nio wonder you think your 1trophy-in10years-team is the best team in the country when a team lyk the Mighty KC wins at least 1 cup every season. You should be very worried that Chiefs lost today and not celebrate. Had Chiefs not lost it would have been easier for your useless team to beat us on Saturday.

If it was Pirates, yes it was going to be more difficult but with Chiefs no. Pirates are the team to beat but Chiefs, even though they are playing good football, are not a big threat.

Tshepo Motshoeneng was right, u know your soccer boy.
