Ayanda Patosi

Patosi scores ‘wondergoal’



South African Ayanda Patosi scored a contender for Goal of the Season in Belgium to help Lokeren to a 2-1 victory over Standard Liege on Friday night.

The 20-year-old has now netted in four successive matches for Lokeren, but he will do well to net a better goal in his career as he showed magnificent technique to volley home from 25-yards.

It was his sixth of the season and confirms his status as one of the stars of the season in Belgium this year, though his form, while not gone unnoticed by national team coach Gordon Igesund, has not led to call-up for Bafana Bafana yet.

Friday’s strike has been described as a ‘wondergoal’ in the Belgian press, who are perplexed that Patosi continues to be overlooked by Igesund.

The victory moves Lokeren up to third in the table, a point behind surprise leaders Zulte-Waregem, though they have now played a goal more.

Meanwhile, Russia-based Siyanda Xulu returned from a thigh injury to sit on the bench as FC Rostov beat Amkar Perm 3-0 on Friday night.

Xulu has missed the last month with the injury, which he sustained shortly after breaking into the Rostov first team following his move from Mamelodi Sundowns in early September.
