Ntshangase: Scoring is still a problem in SA

Thohoyandou - Siphelele Ntshangase believes that prolific goal scorers are still lacking in South Africa which is why national teams fail to live up to expectations in major tournaments. 

Amaglug-glug failed to advance beyond the Group stages at the Rio Olympics after failing to register a single victory at the global spectacle and the Black Leopards man hinted that South Africans still have a long way to go.

The 23-year-old industrious midfielder missed the trip to Brazil due to a long term injury which kept him on the sidelines since December last year, but insisted that he was not disappointed to watch his team-mates taking part in the much anticipated global tournament.

“The way I looked at it, the first game they played very well against Brazil but it was not enough,” said Ntshangase.

“The only problem is that we didn’t convert our chances and that has been the biggest problem in South Africa.

“But I can’t say that it could have been better if I was there, maybe I was also going to miss those chances.

“Otherwise I was not disappointed by not taking part in the tournament because I was injured for a very long time.”
