Chiefs starlet delighted with Bafana strike

Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana starlet Ryan Moon says he is overcome with emotion after hitting his first goal for the national team against Botswana.

The 20-year-old grabbed Bafana’s first goal in the nation’s 2-0 African Nations Championship victory over the Zebras last Saturday. The player, who also got his first official senior goal for Chiefs last season, is the brother of experienced defender Bryce Moon.

The striker told the Sowetan, “I feel great and I want to give God all the glory. Even today I’m still happy and I want to get more and more (goals).

“It’s true when they say dreams do come true . I mean, I spoke about hoping to be in the line-up, to sing the national anthem and score a goal. All those things (have) happened.

“When I got back to the hotel (after the game), I phoned my mother and them. They put me on speaker so I spoke to my mother, father and my brothers. Obviously, they were really excited for me.”

Moon joins an elite list of Bafana legends who scored on debut including the likes of Doctor Khumalo, the late John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu, Phil Masinga, Jabu Pule and Katlego Mphela.
