Thabo Matlaba vs Patrick Phungwayo

Written By Themba Khumalo on Friday, September 27, 2013 | Friday, September 27, 2013

In just two games, I have been able to identify the differences and similarities between Thabo Matlaba and Patrick Phungwayo.

Matlaba is good at defending more than attacking... the only thing that makes him look like he is good at attacking is that he runs up and down the whole 90 minutes... but the truth is that, when he attacks - he takes unnecessary shots that are always off-target, he fumbles a lot in the 18 yard area of the opposition and most of the time he loses the ball when he approaches the 18 yard area, and sometimes his crosses can be bad but he is very good at defending I must say, even though sometimes he struggles with decision making.

Phungwayo is good at both attacking and defending... he makes good runs, he gets in to good spaces and makes those all important crosses and then quickly goes back to defend, although in some cases he gets caught napping... and hey he is very skillful.

Both these players are skillful and they have sweet left legs.

I'd pick Phungwayo for any game because he doesn't complicate things and he sticks to the basics of football.
