Djiehoua 'could have made the difference'


After scoring an equaliser, Djiehoua said he was surprised to see himself being substituted as, “I was giving those big Santos defenders some tough times. I was surprised to be substituted but then that’s the name of the game.

“Perhaps the coaches saw the game differently and I can’t do anything about it. But I believe I could have added another goal because I was charged up after scoring the equaliser.”

Thanda manager, Thabani Gumede, who was sitting on the bench as Roger Palmgren and Johan Eriksson were in the stands alongside technical advisor Gordon Igesund, was seen taking instructions on the phone from someone in the stands.

“I was taking advice from Igesund as he could not sit on the bench,” Gumede said after the game.
