Football: Tshabalala torments Celtic as Chiefs extend lead

Siphiwe Tshabalala created the first goal and scored the second as Kaizer Chiefs won 3-0 at Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday to take a seven-point lead in the South African Premiership. Tshabalala, a diminutive wide midfielder with flowing dreadlocks who scored the opening goal of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, evaded several tackles to set up Zimbabwean Kingston Nkhatha for the opener on 15 minutes.

Football: Our best was not good enough, admits Tshabalala

Midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala said Sunday that hosts South Africa did their best but it was not good enough to overcome Mali in an Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final thriller. Mali won 3-1 on penalties after a 1-1 stalemate late Saturday to reach the semi-finals and confirm a reputation for being party poopers having ousted co-hosts Gabon on penalties in the 2012 tournament.
