Bafana Bafana could be facing an internet star in their Afcon 2019 qualifier against the Seychelles at Soccer City on Saturday (3pm).

While the Pirates’ team boasts many amateurs, the most amateurish looking is goalkeeper Dave Mussard, who set the web on fire when he lined up against Nigeria in their Group E clash last month.

The former pastry chef caught the eye with his huge frame and boep-pens. And in only the 31-year-old’s second match, he was beaten three times in goal.

Bafana’s attack will have to take full advantage of his limited mobility to get maximum points from the doubleheader. But Mussard says he is min gespin about what mense think of his jumbo size.  

After the Nigeria game, he was interviewed by Spanish newspaper Marca and asked about the memes, he says: “Yes, I saw that they came out on television and on the Internet.”

He adds: “I do not know if I’ll be the goalkeeper for the other games, I think I could play against South Africa again.”
