Sweden based South African attacker Linda Mothlalo has described her last minute penalty goal for the Banyana Banyana that sent them to their fifth final of the Womens Africa cup as a a work of Luck on her side.
She told South African website iDiski Times the Banyana Banyana did not perform well despite emerging victorious.
“Performance-wise we could’ve done better but this is a tournament, sometimes you’re going to be bad, sometimes you’re going to be good,
“We take what we take and today we got a win and that’s what we’re gonna take. With the penalty, it’s a 50-50 thing and I guess I had a bit of luck but also experience today. I was super, super nervous but like I said it’s a luck thing.”
Linda scored a penalty deep in added time following a controversial decision by Ethiopian referee Lydia Tafessa after a VAR check.
South Africa will now play against Morocco in their fifth final on Saturday in Rabat as they will look to win their WAFCON after failing to winning it in their last four final appearances.
