The FIFA Instructor Alejandro Heredia who is currently facilitating the FIFA MA Goalkeeping Course at the Technical Centre in Lobamba was impressed about the overall performance of Sihlangu SeMnikati against the top rank national team in Africa, Tunisia. This was after the local side lost by 2-0 in a TOTAL Africa Cup of Nations match that was played on Sunday, 9th September 2018 at the Mavuso Sports Centre in Manzini.
“Even though the local side didn’t start the match very well, the was some great improvement as the game progressed more especially in the second half”; Heredia said. The former Bafana Bafana Goalkeeper Coach noted that Sihlangu SeMnikati lost the match due to the two first half mistakes that were committed early in the match. “The Eswatini side committed two mistakes in the first half and playing against professional sides of Tunisia’s calibre, you will definitely be punished; and if it wasn’t for those errors, the match would have ended in a no goal stalemate”; the FIFA Instructor said. He also urged the local technical bench to help the current team to improve from where it left at the end of the game as it looks promising.
