South Africa’s five hat-trick scorers

It easily beats the highest winning margin in an international game on the continent, set just two months ago, when South Africa’s senior women’s team walloped Comoros 17-0 in the Cosafa Women’s Championship in Port Elizabeth.

11 different players scored for South Africa’s U-17s with two of them grabbing double hat-tricks.

Oyisa Marhasi notched six goals in the first half, and was then promptly taken off by coach Simphiwe Dludlu.

Tiffany Kortjie, one of two changes that South Africa made at the break, netted within two minutes of coming on and went on to score six of her own inside 30 minutes at an average of one goal every five minutes.

Captain Jessica Wade was the first to get to a hat-trick, doing so inside the opening 18 minutes and Nabeelah Grant and Sonika Mzingeli also got a trio of goals.

Seychelles were playing their inaugural game at under-17 level and entering the southern African championship for the first time.

The Premier League has said it is optimistic that “we will see fans back in the stadiums next season”. However, the crowds are likely to return “on a phased basis”.

Football will resume on June 17, following a three-month shut down because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Games will be played behind closed doors at venues yet to be decided.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Premier League chief executive, Richard Masters, said: “No one knows when matches will move away from the behind-closed-doors model and it is right to have contingency plans in place, but there is optimism at the Premier League and at clubs that we will see fans back in the stadiums next season and it may happen on a phased basis.

Masters also disclosed that some of the remaining matches in this season’s competition could be played at neutral venues. However, a decision on that will be reached by the end of next week.

Man-U Manager, Ole Gunner Solskjaer

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he hopes January signing, Odion Ighalo will stay at the club should the Premier League season restart next month.

Former Super Eagles forward, Ighalo, was signed from the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, but his short-term deal expires at the end of May.

Despite United’s interest in extending Ighalo’s stay, Shanghai is reportedly keen for him to return to China for the start of their season.

“The loan deal went to the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back,” Solskjaer said.

“We’re in dialogue and hopefully (he can stay). They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allow him to play for his dream club. It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, maybe with a trophy or two. But at the moment nothing’s been agreed yet. Their league is going to start soon so we are just waiting to see.”

Ighalo scored four goals in three starts and made eight appearances in total for United.
