Mahlatse Makudubela took the Premier Soccer League by storm during this past weekend's action in the DStv Premiership.
Marumo Gallants' skilful entertainer stole the show in the side's 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg in a match that Sports Brief observed.
It was clear that he was in the mood for the extravagant when, during the team's pre-match photograph, he chose to pose for it as if he was in a meditative trance that was met with confusion and amusement by his teammates.

He then topped this in the 12th minute with a memorable goal that will live on long in the memory of those who saw it. After seemingly pointlessly showboating with the ball in the middle of the park, Makudubela laid off the ball to Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo before making a run that came straight out of a FIFA game. The talented Ndlondlo then threaded the ball past the flatfooted Chiefs defence perfectly onto Makudubela's feet, before he calmly slotted past the hapless Itumeleng Khune.
He then celebrated by performing a dancing salute which befitted the quality of the goal. Popular SuperSport analyst Phumudzo Manenzhe chose it as his moment of the week on Extra Time alongside his performance throughout the match that Gallants should have won.
