After playing to a 0-0 draw in their first game on Wednesday, Amaglug-glug came back a more determined side in the second match in Tshwane to net twice via the boots of Santos striker Eleazar Rodgers and Supersport United forward Kermit Erasmus.
Both goals were scored in the second half, with Erasmus’ goal from the top drawer as he received a long pass from Innocent Mdledle, coolly controlled the ball and unleashed a powerful drive from outside 18-yard area in the stoppage time to confirm his status as one of the country’s brightest attacking talents.
Speaking in a post-match interview with snl24.com/kickoff, Bordinggaard heaped praises on the Amaglug-glug players, singling out Lindokuhle Mkhwanazi, Bernard Parker, Mkhanyiseli Siwahla and Lebohang Mokoena as players that impressed him most.
"My players were battling with the heat in the first half and found it difficult to breath," he says. "However, that was a good experience to them to play under different weather conditions than they are used to in Denmark.
"I brought lot of new players and I saw a positive outcome in terms of mental strength and responding to some of the technical aspects that I am trying to apply to the team ahead of the European Under-21 Championships next year.
"South Africa relied mostly on their skill, which even we enjoyed to watch as we don't normally see skills like that in Denmark! South Africa attacked a lot through their wingers, which was good experience for my defenders to face that kind of pressure.”
