Mamelodi Sundowns vs Golden Arrows Nedbank Cup

Posted: 22 March 2014 Time: 22:20

Mamelodi Sundowns came from a goal down to beat Golden Arrows 4-1 in a last 16 round Nedbank Cup tie at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday evening.

Philani Shange opened the scoring for the hosts, but goals from Dove Wome, Lebohang Mokoena, Anthony Laffor and Percy Tau booked Sundowns’ place in the final eight.

Sundowns looked to dominate from the onset, but it was the home side who took the lead through Shange in the 13th minute.

Siyanda Zwane made a driving run down the right flank before playing the ball into the area; his cut-back evaded a couple of Downs players but not Shange, who produced a powerful shot to send the home fans into delirium.

Sundowns continued to press forward and finally found their reward six minutes before the break. Laffor played in Wome, whose low drive from an acute angle got the better of Nkosingiphile Gumede.

The old-guard of Teko Modise, Alje Schut and Surprise Moriri combined well 10 minutes into the second stanza with the latter’s effort smashing off the post, before Mokoena grabbed the lead for the Brazilians in the 58th minute.

‘Cheeseboy’ found himself in a pocket of space just outside the area before smashing the ball past Gumede.

Four minutes later and it was 3-1. Laffor left two defenders in his wake before finishing off superbly with the outside of his boot.

Tau capped off a superb comeback in the 90th minute. Teko Modise hit the inside of the post before recovering the rebound and setting up Tau, who produced an exquisite first time finish to net his first goal of his Sundowns career. 

Golden Arrows: Gumede; Ntombayithethi, Zwane, Nene, Tom, Mngwengwe, Khuboni (Musonda 68’), Katongo, Moholo (Mbewe 61’), Shange (Thwala 74’), Hotto

Mamelodi Sundowns: Sandilands; Mphahlele, Schut, Nthethe, Mashaba, Laffor, Kekana, Modise, Moriri (Masenamela 79’), Wome (Nyandoro 65’), Mokoena (Tau 74’)

That k, ts your opinion sir. I may agree with Jali. Even though he is no longer a pirate player. He is good with marking and he also have a vision interms of ball distribution. Katsande is my player as khosi fan, however going foward he has less to contribute, you can call him half of AJ 15.not looking down upon him, he plays his position very well.

Here I'm talking about engines, the suppliers, the distributors, your roger fetumbas of the game. Your obi mikel,Pirlo and zidanes of this world.

Teko and yeye are still the best in mzantsi....if khuboni had a better team I could be counting him here.

I'm talking about visionaries....

What is Nkatha ? Your coach had to persuade fans not boo him because he fumbles everytime he holds the ball.

Just leave these big-mouthed idiots alone with their useless Zim connection, they are so emotional - they think they are invincible yet they are not.
