There is 'shooting your shot' and then there is SuperSport United striker Thamsanqa Gabuza.
Gabuza was spotted blowing kisses in the direction of Royal AM's businesswoman and celebrity owner Shauwn 'MamKhize' Mkhize, during a DStv Premiership encounter on Tuesday evening.
Gabuza had just equalised for the home side at the Lucas 'Masterpieces' Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville in the 58th minute, when the moment occurred.

Mfundo Thikazi equalised for Thwihli Thwahla in the 75th minute, before Grant Magerman (81st minute) and Bradley Grobler (94th minute) pushed the score out to an unassailable 3-1 win for United.
This was met with the sort of buzz one would expect on social media.

MaMkhize considering taking Royal AM games to Bloemfontein following Celtic fans' protest at Macufe Cup
Shauwn Mkhize has displayed the skill of 'reading the room'. MaMkhize is looking to have some Royal AM fixtures taken to the Free State as soon as possible.
As reported by Sports Brief, she bought out the cash-strapped Bloemfontein Celtic's Premier Soccer League status in 2021, which led to heartbreak and bitterness among Celtic's supporters in the city, the province and the country.
This reached a head last month when die-hard supporters protested outside the Free State Stadium during Royal AM's Macufe Cup match against Kaizer Chiefs.
