Sundowns advance in Champions League

Posted: 2 March 2008 Time: 08:58

Mamelodi Sundowns put their domestic woes behind them for a while at least as they eased into the next round of the CAF Champions League with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Zanzibar champions Miembeni SC at the Super Stadium on Saturday.

The result sees The Brazilians advance 5-0 on aggregate after goals from Bryan Aldave, Lerato Chabangu and a late brace from Peter Ndlovu.

Uruguayan striker Aldave gave the home side the lead on 21 minutes with a finish from close-range, and Chabangu made it 2-0 10 minutes later as he beat the offside trap to put the tie beyond doubt.

The game meandered from there with Calvin Marlin in the home goal a virtual pedestrian, before Ndlovu added the final two goals, first with a shot from Vuyo Mere’s cross, before the same two players combined in injury time to put an extra gloss on the scoreline.

Sundowns now play the winner of the tie between Curepipe Starlight of Mauritius and Coin Nord from the Comores in the next round.

Well done to Sundowns on their win in the champions league. It always starts very well only to falter when it matters most, and I hope this time things will be different because it doesn't really matter how many times you have played at that level, but how well you have fared. Pirates made us proud once and we need new champions from this country or we will continue to be the laughing stock of club football in this country. Already we are such in international football. We are hardly respected by our counterparts in Africa, they see us as a rugby and cricket country that just got away with the 1996 chimpionship, and can you blame them really? I am already sold to those comments myself. By: Rudzani Rasta Musekwa. Stellenbosch university.
