- Now showing an absence on the social media application, @Buccane47204557 is regretting his post after Orlando Pirates’ heavy loss to Mamelodi Sundowns
- Meanwhile, many of his social media followers are now asking the Orlando Pirates if he can still stand by what he said about Mamelodi Sundowns
An Orlando Pirates fan has caught the attention of social media users who are now on his case for his wrong score prediction.
@Buccane47204557 took to his Twitter page just before the Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash on Thursday evening, saying the Tshwane giants were faltering as past results suggested.
The Soweto giants’ follower bragged about their weapons, saying skipper Happy Jele was ready for the match while also singling the praises of the likes of Tshegofatso Mabasa and Gabadinho Mhango as players who could not be contained by Sundowns.
With the match having had a bright start for the hosts, Sundowns emerged as 4-1 victors at Loftus Versfeld Stadium, leaving the disappointed Twitter user to face his followers after the match.
“I feel sorry to those who believe that dis [sic] weak Sundowns will beat @orlandopirates, Sundowns is very weak lately and they concede almost every game, check their last 7/8 games, upfront we have Mabasa, Mhango & Hotto. Jele is back, we still have the likes of Pule, Beckham, Mntambo on the bench!”
Briefly News took a look at the comments from the football fanatics who are now laughing at the Ghost supporter, who has just eaten humble pie.
Mabasa scored for coach Josef Zinnbauer’s troops whilst Peter Shalulile, Themba Zwane, Lesedi Kapinga and Hlompho Kekana’s goals sealed the victory for Masandawana.
“Sundowns will humble you.”
“And you were right, we (Sundowns) conceded a goal.”
“What are you saying now?”
In other football news, Briefly News reported that the evergreen Sundowns continued with their winning run as they demolished Orlando Pirates 4-1 in an entertaining Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Thursday evening.
Pirates were out to end Sundowns’ unbeaten run as they have only lost one match this season, a loss that came at the hands of Bloemfontein Celtic in the MTN8, but they could not stop the reigning Ke Yona champions.
The Brazilians started as the better side between the two where they dominated the proceedings with silky touches and possession in the opening 10 minutes.
