Brazilians win Champions League opener

Posted: 15 February 2008 Time: 23:09

Surprise Moriri scored the only goal of the game to ensure Mamelodi Sundowns victory in their CAF Champions League opener when they beat Miembeni SC 1-0 in Zanzibar on Friday.

Despite Sundowns coach Gordon Igesund adopting an attacking approach to the game, the Brazilians failed to penetrate the hosts' defence in a dull first half at the Amaan Stadium.

The visitors pushed more men forward in the second half and were duly rewarded midway through the half when Moriri scored from corner.

Although the hosts threw everything at Sundowns, Igesund’s charges held on to secure a vital victory away from home.

However, the result came at a stiff price for the Chloorkop side, who saw Benson Mhlongo, Michael Manzini and Lungisani Ndlela all sustain injuries.

Starting Line-up: Marlin, Mere, Mhlongo, Manzini, Kannemeyer, Nyandoro, Dhladhala, Chabangu, Ndlela, Acuna, Moriri.

The fake Brazilians should have won with a big margin cause that team was weak. Please guys don't make noise about having style as if you already won the championship. You can say they are the team of the moment up until they lose a match then you gonna call for the coach's head!
