Orlando Pirates have defied the odds to reach the group stages of the CAF Champions League despite losing 1-0 to TP Mazembe

Posted: 5 May 2013 Time: 17:30

Two penalties and a red card – all allegedly dubious and with that, Orlando Pirates have defied the odds to reach the group stages of the CAF Champions League despite losing 1-0 to TP Mazembe on Sunday in Lubumbashi.

Bucs progress after winning 3-2 on aggregate.

Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi was sent off in the first-half with Pirates officials describing the referee’s decision as a “joke” and as if that was not enough, two penalties were awarded to Mazembe but Senzo Meyiwa was equal to the task on both occasions.

According to Pirates administrator Senzo Mazingisa, the team will be coming back home immediately after the match.

Pirates XI v Mazembe: Meyiwa, Jele, Phungwayo, Lekgwathi, Gcaba, Okonkwo, Masalesa, Bester, Myeni, Segolela, Mbesuma.

Mazembe XI v Pirates: Kidiaba, Kasusula, Kabiona, Kimwaki, Frimpong, Singuluma, Sinkala, Mputu, Kabangu, Samatta, Asante.

I am not ashamed to say I wanted Pirates to lose for the simply reason that the majority of Pirates fans hate Bafana Bafana and always support the teams playing against our national team,

Now that Pirates have won, especially under very difficult conditions, I must confess I am eating humbly pie. Chibuku FC live to fight another day.

Very disappointed with the conduct of African countries. football should be played and won on the football pitch period. Well done to Orlando Pirates against all odds they managed to advance to the group stages of the CAF Champions Legue and this is an important victory not for Pirates only but for South African football as a whole. Well done Buccaneers!!!!!!!
