George Lebese nominated for Colorado Springs Switchbacks Goal of the Year


Former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns star George Lebese has been nominated for the Colorado Springs Switchbacks Goal of the Year award.

Lebese enjoyed a solid debut season abroad with the Switchbacks, scoring twice in 16 USL Championship appearances, including an incredible long-range effort during the club's historic four-goal comeback against Austin Bold in August.

With his side having fallen 4-0 behind at half-time, Lebese completed the remarkable turnaround when he unleashed a left-footed screamer from the edge of the box passed the outstretched arms of Bold shot-stopper Diego Restrepo.

The 31-year-old Bafana Bafana international's sublime effort has now been nominated as one of the two finalists for the Switchbacks' Goal of the Season award, alongside Aidan Daniels' belter against New Mexico United last month.
