Mamelodi Sundowns beat Ajax Cape Town in Nedbank Cup

Posted: 22 February 2013 Time: 22:50

Mamelodi Sundowns are through to the next round of the Nedbank Cup after a 117th-minute winner by Tebogo Langerman against Ajax Cape Town.

With the game heading for penalties, Langerman took a speculative shot from 30 yards out which completely deceived the Dutchman and sailed into the back of the net.

In an entertaining game at the Cape Town Stadium, Ajax had the first chance on 22 minutes when Musa Lebusa was left unmarked from a free-kick, but he headed straight at Wayne Sandilands.

The home side kept up the pressure and had another glorious chance four minutes later when Lebohang Manyama fired over from close range after good work by Wanderson.

Sundowns got their first real opportunity on the stroke of half-time when he found himself one-on-one with Westerveld, but he fired straight at the Dutch goalie.

Paul Rusike was the next to find himself with just the keeper to beat, but he too failed to make the most of it as he shot wide.

Downs were much better in the second half, and should have scored the winner four minutes from time when Matthew Booth was dispossessed, but the resulting cross was headed over by the unmarked Katlego Mphela.

Extra-time brought more chances, with the best falling to Nyasha Mushekwi, whose looping header beat the keeper, but came back off the woodwork and was cleared to safety.

Then, with three minutes to go, came Westerveld’s mistake when he completely misjudged Langerman’s shot to see Ajax crashing out of the Cup.

Ajax Cape Town: Westerveld, Lolo, Allie, Booth, Lebusa, Graham, Wanderson (Scott 84), Shabalala, Manyama (Khenyeza 66), Davids, Rusike (Billiat 46)

Mamelodi Sundowns: Sandilands, Mwanjale, Schut (Arendse 62), Mabaso, Langerman, Kekana, Nyandoro, Pelembe, Laffor, Mphela (Manqele 87), Modise (Mushekwi 52)

Now kickoff is refusing to credit langerman for the goal.i doubt if even ur khwina would deal with that ball. U r like this sithole guy on SABC2 who NEVER say a word about the downs when they win.

Mara Ajax doesn't learn from signing this old flops from Holland leagues, first is was Vonk who made a costly mistake in the last game of the league and now its this Westerveld. S.A its blessed with gud goalkeepers why they didn't buy that SSU keeper during open window if they're serious about avoiding relegation.

Mphela is Klaar. Maybe Pitso should try Manqele and Mushekwi upfront

@Msenti, if Pitso's teams don't score enough goals, how many goals have Pirates scored in their last two league games? or does De Sa's teams score alot of goals? if indeed you were a logical soccer fan, you would have realised that last nights game was quite exciting besides being a Chiefs or Pirates supporter. its high time some of you realise that not everything about SA soccer is about Chiefs and Pirates, their are 16 teams in the league

Mxm Dunusa fans are angry @ Kaizechiefs fan and pieratfaithfools for commenting on their fluke win. But after their M United fluke win they were all up in our face. The bottom lyn is you morons should be repectful when commenting on Pirates and Chiefs topics. But you free to comment on Morka swallows and Ajax they are your mate.

How many howlers has Wesrveld had? Yet he is still favoured ahead of their young deserving keeper? Even Motsoeneng should just go there and take that jersey.
