• Saffas abroad: Serero nets beauty, Zungu returns

    Thulani Serero of Vitesse

    Thulani Serero produced some sensational skill to score his first Eredivisie goal for Vitesse this season as his side played out to a 3-3 draw with Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven, while a number of Bafana stars across Europe watched from the side lines through injury.

    Thulani Serero

    The former Ajax Amsterdam man opened the scoring for Vitesse in the 13th minute against PSV. The Bafana playmaker arrowing his shot into the bottom corner after a mazy run into the box.

    The goal was his first strike in the league this season but could not help his side secure all three points as the title chasing PSV staged a late comeback to earn a point.

    The result sees Serero’s team sit seventh on the Eredivisie log.

    Bongani Zungu

    The Bafana Bafana midfielder made his long-awaited return to club action with Amiens as he came on with eight minutes to play in the 2-2 draw against Saint-Etienne.

    It was Zungu’s first run out in the league since suffering an injury in September and the result saw his team move seven points clear of the relegation zone.

    Lebo Mothiba

    After winning the Coupe de la Ligue last weekend Mothiba’s Strasbourg side continued their fine form with a 2-2 draw against Paris Saint-Germain, stopping the French giants from sealing the league title in the process.

    Mothiba, however, played a bit part in the matchup as he came on with only eight minutes to play but could not find a winner.

    Kamohelo Mokotjo

    Mokotjo played the first 45 minutes for Brentford and got a yellow card, as they played out to a 3-3 draw with Derby County and have fallen off the pace in the race for a promotion play off spot in the English Championship.

    Kurt Abrahams

    The 22-year-old was the star man for his Westrlo side’s in their 2-2 draw with Sint-Truiden in their Belgian Pro League playoff II.

    The forward netted his seventh goal of the season, while he also won the penalty for his side’s other goal on the day.

    Keagan Dolly and Percy Tau

    Both Dolly and Tau did not feature for their sides this weekend as they look to recover from their respective injuries.

    Lebogang Phiri

    The 24-year-old played the entire 90 minutes as Guingamp beat fellow Ligue 1 relegation strugglers Dijon 1-0 to keep their hopes of survival alive.

    The result means that Phiri’s side may still be bottom of the league but are level on points with 19th place Caen and a further point off Dijon.
