Bidvest Wits are the League champions for the first time since they where promoted to PLS, now in 2017 the’ve won the Premier League we so last night when they beat Polokwane City 2-0. After guiding Bidvest Wits to the 2016/17 Absa Premiership title, Gavin Hunt joined Gordon Igesund and Ted Dumitru with four PSL crowns.
Soweto derby is the biggest match in South African football / Soccer is between two giant the Phefeni boys Kaizer Chiefs and Amabhakiniya Orlando Pirates, they played a 1-1 draw as we may remember the past 3derbys all finished in draws. How ever this one we saw the first half was full of pace and intensity and on the balance of play and chances created. The second half provided as much excitement with a ball, teams contributing to a fantastic afternoon football with the draw probably the correct result in the end.
Orlando pirates are number 11 in the log standings so if Chiefs won on the day they were going to number 12 for pirates fans and the brand that will not sit well on them.
This weekend will be watching South Africa team playing in the Super Cup, this cup is played between the Caf Champions League winners (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Confederation Cup winners (TP Mazembe). It will be hosted by Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld Stadium tomorrow. The cup is the continental equivalent of the Uefa Super Cup in Europe and Recopa Sudamericana in South America club football.
As a fellow South African ill be supporting them “Sundowns” all they way because this is a national pride so i urge all soccer lovers to rally behind them even if you support Chiefs, Pirates or any other team in the PSL.
Bidvest Wits will be hoping to continue their winning form this weekend when they host Saint-Louiseinne in the return leg of their Caf Champion League preliminary round match. Also SuperSport United and Platinum Stars will also be in action with the aim of qualifying for the first round of the Caf Confederation Cup. Good luck to all the South African teams may they may us proud.
Soccer it unpredictable indeed why i say this words it because we saw what happened last weekend and last night when a bigger teams lost with a big score, like Orlando Pirates and Barcelona lost with a big score to nil. Orlando Pirates is a giant team in Premiership League PSL and Africa as a whole, but it was really disappointing to see them loose the way they lost against Mamelodi Sundowns, suffering a humiliating 6 – 0 drupping…
Meanwhile last night Barcelona (ESP) lost to PSG (FRA) 4 – 0 in a first round of UEFA CHAMPION LEAGUE UCL. No one predicted or thought Barcelona may loose their first round away game. The Catalan giants are the most successful side in Champions Leageu history, having lifted the covered trophy four times – just one less than their eternal rivals Real Madrid.
The sport of soccer(called football in the most countries in the world) and is considered to be the world’s most popular sport. In soccer there are two teams of eleven players. Soccer is played on a large grass field with a goal post at each end. #The objection of the game is to get the soccer ball in to the opposing team’s goal. The key to soccer is that with the exception of the goalie, players cannot touch the ball with their hands they can only kick, knee or head the ball to advance it or score a goal.
Soccer is played at all levels throughout the world from small kids leagues to professional and international teams. Perhaps the most famous soccer tournament is the World Cup, held every four years. The World Cup is a soccer competition among countries and is one of the most watched events in the world.
Kids throughout the will make up fields and goals post just about anywhere and start playing the game. The game is also fun and competitive.
