"Unfortunately, he decided to play the ball back or he was trying to play it short and couldn't see the danger, so we got punished. “I believe Njabulo maybe was a bit upset at himself,” Zwane said. “I believe Njabulo maybe was a bit upset at himself,” Zwane said. “He gave the ball away in the wrong areas and we were punished. "Football is a game of mistakes, it's a game that teaches us to be better, as much as I expected him to do better – that was his decision he made on the day on the field and we got punished from it.
