Masuluke: I used to be a striker


The hulking goal minder left his post between the sticks in the sixth minute of additional time with his side trailing Orlando Pirates by a single goal in an Absa Premiership clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

What happened next left all those who saw the goal live from the venue, on television, or later on social media, absolutely awestruck.

"I am still shocked. When woke up this morning was still suprised," the now world-renowned Limpopo goalkeeper told

"I still dont believe it. It's not somthing that I practice. It's just decision I took at that moment. Fortunately it worked so well. I am still excited and can't believe it. I feel great."

Masuluke gives some insight into where his goal scoring instincts may have come from as he used to play as a striker when still in his youth.

However, the 23-year-old divulges that his goal against the Buccaneers is one of a kind and incomparable with anything he netted whilst still playing as a forward between 2008-2010.

"I used to play as striker at home in Giyani. I played as striker with my former team Chudu Young Chiefs playing in the Castle league in Giyani. But this will stand out as the most memorable goal in my whole soccer career," he added.
