By Sduduzo Masuku

The weekend of big sporting action for South Africa produced nothing short of quality. There was plenty of drama everywhere, The Proteas delivered masterclass performance that was led by Vernon Philander. On the other hand Springboks failed to continue their record of never been beaten by England in a rugby match. However Shakes Mashaba’s Men stole the show with a polished performance against the might Lions of Senegal.

There were plenty of men that stole the show on the day but there were two noticeable individual performances from Mpho Makola and Itumeleng Khune. The way Makola was able to move the ball with ease, protecting it and making wise decisions all the time, proved his quality on the football pitch. On the other hand Khune was on his toes as always, denying the likes of dangerous Sadio Mane, Cheik Kouyate just to name a few.
