“If you’re wondering how they scored, how they tried to find their players in the final third, it was route one,” Khumalo said on SABC1 as per iDiski Times.

“With us, we wanted combinational play. If I was part of the team, the coach then – understand my strengths, will I be able to dribble, no I can’t.

“Bring a player that will be a plus for us, positive for us to play like this. Which department were we supposed to add on? A striker, in our striking force because we need to pump balls to them. We don’t need jugglers in this game. We can’t play. We can see in the first 10 minutes, we can’t play,” Khumalo added.

The 1996 African Cup of Nations winner said Rwanda put pressure of Mudau which ultimately forced him to make a mistake.

“You need brave soldiers, you need brave players to interpret the situation without the coach telling you.

“At Sundowns they don’t get the pressure he [Mudau] got.

“So, he can turn and pass the ball to Williams for them to start a build-up attack [when playing for Sundowns]. In this instance, you can’t do that,” said Khumalo.
