Baroka FC stun Kaizer Chiefs in Nedbank Cup

Posted: 24 April 2011 Time: 17:18

Vodacom League side Baroka FC caused a major upset on Sunday beating Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 to reach the Nedbank Cup semifinals.

Baroka’s win at the Peter Mokaba stadium will certainly go down as one of the biggest upsets in the history of South African football, after Thobani Mncwango scored at the death to record a famous win for the Ga-Mphahlele outfit.

Amakhosi started the better side but Baroka fought back with Mncwango forcing a save out of Itumeleng Khune in the 26th minute when after some great interchange of passes between him and Katlego Mashego, Mncwango shot powerfully from some distance and Khune tipped it over the bar.

However, Chiefs drew first blood when Knowledge Musona put Chiefs ahead in the 36th minute to break Baroka’s resistance. Skipper Jimmy Tau paced down the right and crossed for Musona, whose left footed clinical strike hit the roof of the net.

Baroka refused to throw in the towel and were back in it on the stroke of halftime, when veteran Sam Ndlovu headed in from a corner to equalise.

Chiefs could have put Baroka to the sword in the second half, but wasted some great opportunities in the second half.

Sthembiso Ngcobo, who had stepped in for Stanton Lewis on the stroke of halftime, shot over the bar in the 56th minute when it seemed easier to score than to miss.

Chiefs continued to fluff their opportunities and were made to pay for it at the death, when Mncwango scored from a rebound after a corner to stun the Soweto giants.

Suprise!!!! Suprise!!!! Did you know that Chiefs and Pirates were bought out by Standard Bank to lose the games against Baroka FC and Free State Stars? The two teams are still having the money from Standard Bank and this cup competition is sponsored by their competitor Nedbank. It makes sense neh? The two teams will never deny nor confirm this but it is true.So the secret is out.

Until the most infulential team in South Africa hires a black South African coach,this results will remain a norm.Players at Chiefs are scared to express themselves hence all their fluke wins.If it weren't for Khune's heroic saves throughout the season,Chiefs would be in number 13 by now. How many times has he won man of the match awards.This should tell you a story.
