Sundowns stunned by AmaZulu

Posted: 22 December 2010 Time: 21:37

AmaZulu stunned Mamelodi Sundowns with a 3-2 success in a thrilling Absa Premiership clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.

Lehlohonolo Majoro's brace put Usuthu in control and they led 2-0 at the break, but Sundowns hit back through Katlego Mphela and Lionel Mtizwa. But AmaZulu sealed the points with a late strike from Tangeni Shapahu.

Namibian striker Shipahu, who was one of the star performers in AmaZulu’s 4-0 win against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Sunday, should have given his team the lead as early as the fourth minute.

Defender Siyanda Xulu gifted Shipahu a clear run at Wayne Sandilands in the Sundowns goals by missing an easy clearance. But the striker shot hopelessly wide when he had the goal at his mercy.

However, continued pressure from the visitors yielded a goal for AmaZulu when Sibusiso Hadebe’s precise pass from the centre of midfield cut open the Sundowns defence and fell perfectly for team mate Majoro who was located in the opposition penalty area.

The striker, who also bagged a brace of goals against Aces, controlled the ball expertly and fired coolly past Sandilands in goals. Majoro doubled the Usuthu’s advantage after linking up with Shipahu in a move that started in AmaZulu’s own half. Once again, Majoro was able to finish with aplomb.

Sundowns got just the break they were looking for to get back into the game when they were awarded a penalty in the 51st minute. Mphela, who came on as a halftime substitute, pulled back one for the hosts.

From then onwards it looked certain that Sundowns would draw level and possibly pull clear as they were completely dictating play. Mabhuti Khenyeza should have restored parity when he had clear sight of goal in the 59th minute, but he hit his volley onto the AmaZulu crossbar.

However, the Brazilians eventually drew level in the 77th minute when a Mutizwa volleyed home during a goalmouth scramble.

With the stage set for the Sundowns to pull off a memorable comeback, it was the visitors who claimed the spoils when Shipahu finally managed to find the back of the net in the 90th minute with a lobbed effort.

I am glad that Majoro and AMAZULE managed to beat a team which win by luck playing boring football (sunflop) even with the assistance of the refree. I was shocked when Tangeni Shipahu was yellow carded by having creps. Hebe usotho hebe.

on the other hand Mosona remided me of Bebeto when he score his 8th goal of the season followed by the nineth goal. shapa Makhosi shapaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Sunkak fans were talking so much KAK about the Chiefs/Aces match. These morons thought their average team only needed to turn at the stadium to collect the three points. For them it was a given.

The reason why some Sunkak fans are so confident that their team will "win" the league is becos they know that Motsepe has realised that all the money he spent on buying players all these years has not produced results he has now adopted a new strategy - that of buying referees. What was that kak of a penalty ?

Call us Sunflops, call us what ever you wish but we are on top. We never said we'l win all the matches. we said we'l win the League & yes we are gonna win w five games to go. Even if u beat us on the 8th we'l still be above you.

We'l win the league fairly & there won't be a need to establish operation dribble which was established when Chiefs won the league controversially. By the way how is your Jose Torrelba doing?

Back from Mbombela stadium where Wits dissappointed us only to be confronted by even more dissappointing news of our loss to Amazulu. If the attitude of underming teams doesn't stop, i'm afraid all the haters, especially from "Lucky Kaizerbels 11" will laughing come end of the season.

The team probably had "freeway Booth" in this game. I will say it again, we have a palooka coach guiding our team, i miss Hristo. And lastly, shut up Kaizerbels!
