    Supersport United through, defeat Stars 

    SuperSport United are through to the semi-finals of the R8-million MTN8 as they beat Free State Stars2-1 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium with goals

    Supersport United vs Moroka Swallows

    by Nathan Paulse and Franklin Cale.

    Both teams were sporting their new arrivals, with Paulse, Bevan Fransman, Roscoe Pietersen, Lucas Thwala and George Maluleka turning out for SuperSport United, while Taonga Dondo, Luyanda Hlongwa and Daniel Cordosa made their debuts with Free State Stars.

    The new lads made their impact when Maluleka supplied a great ball into the box just before the half hour mark, which found Paulse. His header put Gavin Hunt’s men in the lead.

    Soon after, Stars coach Steve Komphela was given his marching orders by the referee Daniel Bennett when he had too much to say about the tackles on his players.

    SuperSport went further ahead when Franklin Cale drove in from a set piece, missing everybody and sneaking in at the far post.

    Free State Stars finally managed to pull a goal back through the impressive Katlego Mashaba in the 63rd minute, when he latched onto a poor piece of defending by Pietersen, to chip it into the back of the net.

    SuperSport United ended the game 2-1 winners to eliminate Free State Stars from the MTN8.

    Euro 2012 Final 

    Congratulations Spain! The Spanish side thrashed Italy by 4 goals with no reply on Sunday, 1 July 2012, retaining their title.

    What a way to start the month of July and become the first team to win three back-to-back major tournaments.

    The brilliance of “Super Mario” Balotelli, which saw the Italians triumph over Germany in the semi-finals, was not enough to overcome the patient possession game of Spain.

    Spain was already ahead by 2-0 when Italy was reduced to ten players on the field. Thiago Motta limped off the field injured and unable to continue. The Italian coach Cesare Prandelli had already used all his available substitutions and Italy were not virtually reduced to spectators for the rest of the match.

    Italy had managed a 1-1 draw in their opening group game against Spain, but on the day of the final, Spain was able to find something extra and prove that they are currently the international football side to beat.
