Simphiwe Mtsweni statistical analysis
Posted: 20 February 2014 Time: 14:15
Simphiwe Mtsweni made his League debut for Kaizer Chiefs last night, and all in attendance at Soccer City would have been impressed by his performance.
The 19-year-old, a Stars of Africa graduate, played the full 90 minutes of the 3-0 win against Bloemfontein Celtic and never once looked out of place.
A look at his stats on the night confirms as much, with him having won three of the three tackles he attempted, and four of the six challenges he went into.
His overall pass-rate of 80 per cent (48 out of 60 passes completed) is impressive, though in the final third that ratio dropped to 58 per cent.
He also only attempted one cross which went over the goalline and had no shots at target, indicating that while the defensive part of his game is pretty solid, he could do with some more work on attack.
Still, Chiefs’ fans will feel they have a more than decent replacement at left-back should Tsepo Masilela’s injury problems persist.
