Kaizer Chiefs beat AmaZulu in Telkom Knockout

Posted: 23 October 2010 Time: 22:25

Kaizer Chiefs beat AmaZulu 2-0 in the last 16 of the Telkom Knockout Cup on Saturday night.

Goals from Abia Nale and Reneilwe Letsholonyane, near the interval, settled matters for the Amakhosi.

AmaZulu, who were second best for much of this encounter, where outdone by a well drilled Chiefs side who were firm on defence and creative on attack.

The match started at a good tempo much to the delight of the approximately 25 000 spectators in attendance.

Kaizer Chiefs’ Knowledge Musona was the first player to get a shot on target when he hit a well drilled effort from the edge of the AmaZulu penalty area in the 17th minute, but Mbongeni Mzimela playing in goals was able to collect comfortably.

A few minutes later a Musona free-kick deflected off home side’s defensive wall and rattled the upright, Mzimela was well beaten. The kick was awarded when the keeper was judged to have handled the ball outside his area.

AmaZulu’s only attempt on goal in the half came when Ayanda Dlamini arrowed a firm header on target from Bongani Mbele’s set-piece, Itumeleng Khune – the Chiefs goalkeeper – needed to attempts to gather the effort.

But as the half progressed, the visitors began to up the ante and it was only through some desperate defending that AmaZulu prevented Chiefs from opening the scoring.

And when Musona was gifted possession by the opposing defence, he hit the base of AmaZulu’s upright with Mzimela at his mercy.

Chiefs’ pressure finally yielded dividends in the 41st minute when Kaizer Motaung collected the ball in midfield, shrugged off a marker, beat another and slid an inch perfect pass into the path of Nale. The winger applied the finishing touch with a firm low drive that had the beating of Mzimela.

Two minutes later, Mthokozisi Yende, playing in central midfield for Chiefs, threaded the ball to Musona who took up a wide position on the left flank. The striker left his marker for dead and fired a low cross into the AmaZulu penalty area.

Three unmarked Chiefs players were queuing up to blast home but Letsholonyane took it upon himself to apply the finishing touches, he easily side-footed past a stranded Mzimela.

Try as they like the home side were still not able to muster any meaningful attempts on goals in the second half.

Apart from a few probing crosses played into Chiefs penalty area which Itumeleng Khune dealt with easily, AmaZulu had nothing to show for their second half endeavours.

That lewis guy from swallows was right when he said this team doesn't have style of play-all they do is run like headless chickens without pacing themselves correctly. has anyone noticed how pirates and chiefs usually fade out on the 2nd half of play? no class or sense of identity at all, just teams with lot of supporters nothing more. this is one of the reasons why these two teams will not win the league anytime soon-remember how ted use to play them? he made them think when playing not this running as if the player is on steroids or an apartheid policeman is after him. there's nothing exciting about watching chiefs or pirates play!

The so-called journalist who wrote this report should in future allow someone else to read the report before submitting anything online. it's embarrassing to count the number of gramma errors in just one report. i know that you're probably a black guy but please that's no excuse for a pathetic report.
I'd suggest that you read a couple of books (not magazines) for the next few weeks remaining this year. don't be another typical affirmative employee!

I'm also glad the game was shownon Supersports .Did you notice the poor camera shorts of the Pirates game. You could hardly tell who has the ball. I hate SABC and i hope they dont ever show Chiefs game. Watching Sundowns game on SS immediately after that was like watching a different game from a diffeent world. SABC sucks.

we dont want english teachers here, go to libraries and stop telling us gramma that u dont even know. We know u have degrees but u r applying them in a wrong forum. Here we are not concern about english but about soccer. Principals and teachers exams r this week, leave the soccer 4 soccer ppl.

thivhu and dikotsi.

It's without a doubt that you two are missing my point. a journalist without writing skills obviously cheated his way to his degree. I'll never spend another cent KO magazine because of the lack of effort these journalists put into their work.
Anyways you don't have to go to a good model-c school to learn the art of writing. look at what mandela can do with a pen but i guess you also have to look at zuma while at it. one of these gentlemen puts a lot of effort to their work while the later clearly doesn't even bother. if you can't write a good article then obviously you're not a journalistic. you're just like any other cabbage in this forum!!

In football there is no such things as peaking up too early- only in south africa such term exists. look at clubs such as real, barcelona, chelsea, and united, these clubs win almost every week. if you drop points now simply because you don't want to "peak up early" then when is right time to "peak up." i'd advice you not to listen to those soccer analysts on the national broadcaster as they will corrupt your mind with their stupid ideologies. our "big" teams of which I'm a fan of one of them-should try to win at least 70% of their games. winning should become a habit not that "they're on form" crap.

Hi to the KHOSI family , nisaphila kodwa?

We played well in the 1st half and I think some of you have noticed that if our players start playing as a unity/teamwork then we make a different in the game. If you look at those 2 goals we scored , that’s when we played as a team and I must Kaizer Jr = he’s a team player ,he’s not selfish and improving.

If we can cut this disease(individualism) in our team , and the players start making altruistic decisions then we stand a good chance of clinching few trophies including ABSA Championship

Well done Amakhosi amahle

Again a certain cabbage fan is missing the point. big teams win consistently unlike our "big" teams. last season supersport won around 50% of their which is not good enough for a championship team. if our teams continue with this attitude then we'll never be on top again in africa as this attitude also exists in our national team. true sportsmanship is about trying your best to win the game not to lose approach which has been adopted by most PSL coaches. it goes without saying that chiefs will draw their next game simply because of inconsistency and lack of ambition.
