Chiefs man delighted with Bafana debut

Kaizer Chiefs striker Ryan Moon

Kaizer Chiefs forward Ryan Moon has revealed his delight after netting on his Bafana Bafana debut in their 2-0 win against Botswana on Saturday.

Stuart Baxter’s side recorded a 2-0 victory against the Zebras in the first leg of their 2018 Chan qualifiers, with Moon and Gift Motupa netting for the visitors.

“I feel great and I want to give God all the glory,” Moon said in post-match comments.

“Even today I’m still happy and I want to get more and more [goals].

“It’s true when they say dreams do come true. I mean, I spoke about hoping to be in the line-up, to sing the national anthem and score a goal. All those things [have] happened,” he added.

The 20-year-old, who joined the likes of Doctor Khumalo, Mpho Makola, Philemon Masinga and the late John Shoes Moshoeu in netting on his national team debut, highlighted that Bafana deserved to win the game after sticking to their game plan.

“It was always tough and it was hot in the first half, but we had a good game plan and we stuck to it.

“We didn’t worry about them playing and we took our chances, which was the most important thing.

“We could have won by more than two goals, maybe four or five. But the most important thing is that we got a good result away from home,” he said.
