We’ve compiled the best Orlando Pirates goals from April and May 2018 to determine the final Ford Goal of the Month winner to wrap up the 2017/18 football season.
For the first time this season, the Ford Goal of the Month competition features goals scored against teams outside of South Africa as the Projext X 2018 Tour to Rio de Janeiro submitted world-class entries. The SAB’s top goal-scorer Zakhele Lepasa features in the contest a whopping four times having scored at least once against four of Rio de Janeiro’s top 5 football clubs – Barra Da Tijuca, Botafogo, Fluminense, Flamengo and Vasco Da Gama.
March’s Ford Goal of the Month Winner, 16-year old Augustine Mahlonoko has submitted an entry for the second time in a row, this time with a superb finish against Flamengo.
From the Orlando Pirates First Team, Augustine Mulenga’s PSL Goal of the Season nomination against Bloemfontein Celtic makes an appearance alongside Thabo Qalinge’s right-footed winning goal against AmaZulu FC.
As the Ford Goal of the Month competition comes to a close, we can be positive that the calibre of goals we saw this season is only an indication of the class of goals we can expect in the 2018/19 season. We would like to sincerely thank our supporters for your continued support and contribution to the Ford Goal of the Month features in 2017/18.
