      My thoughts as well.. whatever happened to this guy?? He seemed to be the best thing in front of goal for both club and country but for such a short duration.

        He was only given a chance to play post 30. I knew very well that at that age, we wouldnt have him for long in the national team. But in this brief period, he has served us well. with his game relaint more on power than skill, i doubt that his return to the national team is imminent at this age.

    On another note it was good to see Mbesuma on the bench for his club after such a long time. It looks like the injury might finally be done with. Good timing considering we are going into the qualifiers soon. Now its time for him to reclaim his spot in the first team.

    That is good considering that they were cheated in the first leg. God is great.
