Chiefs out of Nedbank Cup

Posted: 25 April 2010 Time: 17:03

Telkom Knockout champions Kaizer Chiefs were shocked 2-0 by FC Cape Town in a Nedbank Cup Last 16 tie at Botshabelo Stadium on Sunday.

Cape Town went ahead in the 19th minute, courtesy of Lyle Lakay, and doubled their lead in the second half, when captain Samuel Eboule Bille scored in the 64th minute.

The Cape side were outplayed at times, but their guts, organisation and determination in defence carried them into the quarterfinals.

FC Cape Town employed tactics of getting at least 10 men behind the ball when Chiefs had possession and this worked perfectly as the Amakhosi found themselves very frustrated by their inability to find space.

In fact the Soweto giants had to wait until the 25th minute for their first chance on goal which saw Jose Torrealba shooting over the bar from a tight angle.

By that stage, though, Chiefs were already a goal down following Lakay’s 19th minute strike for the Cape side, the youngster having shown good pace in exposing the Chiefs defence before finishing with a low angled shot.

Mukendi Mulumba had supplied the through ball for Lakay’s goal and in the 30th minute he came close to scoring himself with a well-struck effort on the turn.

Amakhosi’s only shot on target in the first half came three minute before the break when FC CT keeper Thembalethu Moses did superbly to tip Mthokozizi Yende’s 25-yard effort overt the bar.

The Soweto side continued to dominate the game after the restart, with the First Division team happy to sit back and soak up the pressure.

Torrelaba had a good chance to level matters in the 50th minute, but he dragged his shot over the bar.

The Cape side hardly threatened Chiefs at all in attack, yet after 65 minutes they were 2-0 up, the goal coming from a set piece as skipper Eboulle Bille powered home a header from Lakay’s corner.

The game soon retuned to the FC Cape Town half of the field but Mandla Masango had a shot blocked by man-of-the-match Francois Adams while Abia Nale bounced his 78th minute header over the bar.

The final stages of the game saw Chiefs continuing to attack, but they were foiled by some outstanding saves from Moses, who kept out efforts from Masango and Torrelaba.

To all the Pie-rats and Sunclowns fans please rememberthe following fans;
1. Chiefs have won the Telkm Cup meaning they have kept their reocrd of winning at least one cup a season intact.
2. Only one of you can win this cup - NOT both of you so one of you will be disappointed.
3. There is still a possibilty that you too may be out in your next games.
4. We MAkhosi started bragging after thumping YOUR respective teams
5. FC Cape Town is NOT Pie-rats or Sunclowns
6. Chiefs will win a Cup next season

Can't you just wait to WIN it and start bragging.

Tzotzo ... you're just as good as your last game bottom line is that you LOST a lesser opponent shut your big mouths, which like the womenfolk you are was getting bigger by the day after you won the Telkom ... so yeah we wanted to see you brought down to mother earth, and in this fashion it was all the more sweet. Just go cry yourself to sleep.

I thought I won the bet for you to stay away from this forum for good, what do you want here?

To all my Khosi family, stay strong and wait for the pre-season and the new season.

To VV you had to lose at some point, keep your head up high and we still trust you.

A man was caught running down the street in naturena with only his Rabali Blackpool shirt on, asked by police why he was acting crazy, he said out of excitement he agreed to an outrageous deal with his woman that should Ch!mps loose, she is not gonna give it to him until Ch!mps are crowned champs league champs. Now it turns out Pearl is the woman in question, she is apparently stil sobing, hahaha!

Hi my beatiful Khosi family. Let's keep our head up. Honestly I wasn't happy with the 1st line-up but well we accept and we lost fair and square. Well done to FC CP. I'm still happy that we managed to finished the race with R4.25 million in our bag and the trophy is in our cabinet. Well done guys 2009/10 wasn't that bad. My blood is Gold and Black

Yes, we're Zimchips,with average players...but if average players can bring home R4 mil then we're cool with our average players. Average players that will make sure that their team wins at least one trophy every season. My blood is Gold and Black.
