South Africa’s 2-0 win over Morocco in San Pedro on Tuesday produced one of the more impressive goals of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2023).

Teboho Mokoena’s sublime free kick five minutes into additional team, sealed qualification.

When the spot for a free kick is not central, it is hard to find the near post.

Not only because the angle is often against the taker, but also because it is difficult to get it over the wall and generate enough bend and dip after that to score.

Yet, that is exactly what Mokoena managed to do last night’s encounter.

South Africa will now play Cape Verde at 8 PM in Saturday’s quarter final.
