RUSTENBURG - Davide Somma
scored after just 67 seconds to send South Africa on their way
to a comfortable 2-0 win over Kenya in a friendly on Wednesday.
Steven Pienaar added a second on the stroke of half-time when
he shot home from the edge of the box to score his first goal
for his country in almost six years.
The hosts took early control of the game at Rustenburg's
Royal Bafokeng Stadium when striker Somma, winning only his
second cap, tapped in at the near post after a storming run down
the right wing by Anele Ngcongca.
He was denied a second when he struck the upright but
Pienaar, captaining the side after Aaron Mokoena was left on the
bench, doubled the lead after a corner just before the break.
The hastily arranged game was South Africa's last warm-up
match before their African Nations Cup qualifier against
continental champions Egypt at the end of March.
