Aubrey Ngoma's tremendous early season form has cluminated in the 27-year-old claiming a first ever winner's medal as he played a key role in Cape Town City's capture of the Telkom Knockout crown.
The former Orlando Pirates man bagged a goal and an assist as the City Boyz bested SuperSport United 2-1 in the TKO showpiece hosted at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
"I'm so emotional right now, the hard work that we've been putting in in training is slowly being rewarded. I think we deserve it today. If we could have chosen 11 man of the match then we would have chosen 11. Everyone put in a good shift tonight," he told SuperSport TV.
Ngoma says he knew that victory against an experienced Matsatsantsa was always going to be a tough ask but was impressed with the way the team applied themselves despite feeling they could have put the game to bed had they taken their chances.
"We knew they were going to come. They are experienced in cup games. They are experienced in all areas," he said. "We always rely on our speed and counter attacks. We should have buried the game with the chances that we had. Mentally we managed to come back immediately [after the goal].
"Everyone put in a good shift and the odds were against us when you look at the experience of SuperSport. I'm so proud of each and every one that is involved with the team."
