‘Drogba’ – We were robbed

Ndulula says Under-23s were robbed by the referee in Benin

Posted: 6 June 2011 Time: 02:39 pm

Bongani Ndulula says Amaglug-glug were robbed of points in their Olympic qualifier against Benin by questionable refereeing.

However, the striker is confident that South Africa will bounce back after the 3-1 defeat.

South Africa will need to beat Benin at least 2-0 and not concede at home if they still hope to make it to London next year.

“We were robbed. Both the referee and his assistants were against us with dubious decisions during the whole 90 minutes," Ndulula tells KickOff.com.

“Their first goal came from a questionable penalty and every time we went forward we were adjudged offside,” continues the Bucs striker, who scored the only goal for South Africa during the match.

Despite the defeat, ‘Drogba’ is confident that the Under-23s will reverse the score in the return fixture in a fortnight’s time.

Sizoba betha [we will beat them at home]. They are not a strong team and were helped by the referee. It’s going to be a whole different game in the return match and we will definitely beat them here at home,” he says.

Eish!!! The way Ndulula is scoring regularly for U23, I can smell that the boy can score hatrick soon when he plays with Jali, Serero, Classen and Maluleke.
Ndulula will be a threat that will for tight marking from the opponents. And this will make Serero to score goals from the other position.

Oh..I still can't believe this...anyway the u23's recent away record has not been great..drawing with Mauritius and loosing to Malawi. Yet Mashaba did not see the weaknesses in the team. Can KO pls get the details of this match..who started, how was the ref, etc. All Mashaba has to do is to swallow his pride and call up experienced playas...Jali, Serero, Xulu, S Khumalo, Maluleke, Erasmus & Classen and secure the Olympic qualification...I still rate this generation of U23s higher than the 2000 class so please Mashaba..get help if you have to!

Vindicated!

So this boy has the uefa refereeing license? He must be a strong man, he plays, scores and referees in one game. My advice to him is that he must take the defeat professionally and build on that. That he tells us the Benin team is weak is again an embarrassment to his profession. Be professional Drogba. Raise above petty staff. The real Drogba is embarrasses you are being stupid and dragging his name into disrepute.

You guys are vermin and on top of that you smell that is why we don't like you.
