    Good job Dennis.

    Some South Africans on Daily Mail said their own Percy Tau was the star man of the game (he gave the assist that led to one of the goals). Hope they can see for themselves how wrong they were.

    And for those of you in this forum who said Dennis was merely lucky with those goals, hope you can also see how wrong you were. You have now heard from the experts. The guy was simply superb!

    More to come from our dear Dennis.
