Fransman, Fanteni on target

Posted: 6 October 2008 Time: 13:09

Bevan Fransman scored a dramatic 88th minute winner for his Israeli club Maccabi Netanya on Sunday to hand them an away win against highly fancied Maccabi Haifa and also a top place in the league.

Fransman cracked home a screaming shot to give Netanya a major boost as they chase a first league title in 25 years.

It was Fransman’s second goal in seven appearances for his new club, whom he joined last month.

The 25-metre shot from the former Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs defender livened up a dreary affair at the Ramat Gan stadium in Israel’s main city.

The three points take Lothar Matthaus’ team back to the top of the standings and mean that, despite playing unimpressive football so far this season, Netanya has now won four of their first five matches.

Netanya lead by two points from Maccabi Haifa, the club of Tsepo Masilela and Thembinkosi Fanteni, who scored twice after coming on as a substitute in the 3-1 win on Saturday over Maccabi Petach Tikva.

Well done Bevan and Terror. You are really doing the business in Israel. I believe Terror will be a target for the Bigger European leagues end of this season. The guy can deliver for Bafana if he is given the support of the Technical Team. Bevan that was a great goal. Always said you should trust yourself more with your long distance shooting. I really think you should model your game around the style of Matheus Sammer. Well done guy. You make us proud.

For those that want to see Bevans goal. Here is the link. Here you go!

Well done boys,

Fransman come back & give Aaron Mokoeana an early retirement from international soccer,since he failed at club level.
