Namibian goal machine Peter Shalulile scored the only goal of the game as The Brazilians strengthened their grasp on top of the league table.
The hosts Matsatsantsa were not at full strength, due to a coronavirus attack on their squad. They missed several key players ahead of the game.
“I think it was a very tough match.” Mngqithi said to SuperSport TV after the victory.
“But I think to a certain extend we made it tough. We got some chances that we could have buried, but also credit must be given to them.
“First three minutes of the game, they got a very good shot from zone 14 in front of our defence. The same first minute second half, they also got a shot in that space.
“On set-pieces they are always a big factor we knew that. A lot of crosses brought into our box, but I think the boys fought very hard.
“We made it difficult for ourselves by not finishing the chances that we got because I think the anxiety started to creep in when we could not terminate our chances and from there, we started making some silly mistakes technically in losing the ball.” He added.
