Orlando Pirates got their pre-season training camp in Spain with a 1-0 win over Israeli outfit Maccabi Tel Aviv in Malberlla on Thursday.
Patrick Maswanganyi‘s goal was the difference in a game which Pirates often matched Tel Aviv pound for pound, especially in the first half. The new Pirates signing tucked home a stunner from the edge of the box after being left unmarked, and thus giving the goalkeeper no chance.
The two teams went into the half-time break with Pirates leading 1-0 as they looked comfortable on the ball and knocked it around nicely on a sunny day.
Jose Riveiro’s charges managed to hold on to their slim lead and record an impressive first win in Spain.
