SA Can't Believe Makaringe Missed This Opportunity

Pirates locked horns with Al-ittihad a team from Libya, who needed just a draw to get through. The likes of Lorch started on the bench. Hotto did not features for Pirates. it meant that the technical team had to re-arrange the players a bit on the field. Shandu had to be pushed much more forward as a winger. 

Fans went to the stadium, they were hoping to see more goals however it was not meantime to be.  

Pirates struggled to penetrate the opposition most of the time. The game needed a special player who can take the game to the opponent. Hotto was really missed on the game.

The team played a goalless draw with Al-Ittihad. However Pirates could have scored after getting a great opportunity. Makaringe missed an open net. Peprah failed to connect with the ball initially. I guess Makaringe thought Peprah will kick the ball by the time the ball got to him he was not prepared. He was surprised.

However some supporters were not impressed.  

They believe Makaringe could have done better in that situation as an experience player. However he missed. It seems like Pirates over reliance on Shandu is starting to catch up with the team.

Opposition teams are now to planning around his movement.

Pirates finished top of the group. They have qualified for the next stage of the CAF champions league tournament.

On the PSL Pirates are occupying position number 5. They have played one more game compared to Cape Town City who occupies position number 4 above Pirates.
