On October 21, 2023, at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris, France, Lebo Mothiba of Strasbourg celebrated his goal in a Ligue 1 Uber Eats match against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and RC Strasbourg (RCS). However, the goal was later cancelled. Despite being injured, South Africa star Lebo Mothiba enthusiastically discussed Bafana’s famous 2-0 victory against Morocco with his RC Strasbourg teammates.
Mothiba, who had previously featured for South Africa in the 2019 Afcon edition, couldn’t resist getting involved in banter at Strasbourg, expressing his passion and confidence in an online video released by the club. Mothiba’s excitement was evident as he recounted how he had foreseen the victory against Morocco and remained calm and collected before the match. He mentioned teasing the Moroccan-born players at the French club but chose to leave them alone as they seemed disappointed.
He referred to them as “little brothers,” particularly those from Strasbourg’s B team or U19 team. In an online post, Mothiba was seen wearing the Bafana jersey from the 2019 edition of Afcon and shared his delight with his team, planning to take photos and celebrate the victory further.
