Downs striker wins crossbar challenge


It’s the off-season, but some of South Africa’s footballers took part in the Heneiken crossbar challenge with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Mamelodi Sundowns duo Aubrey Ngoma and Thokozani Sekotlong were at the event held in Randburg last Saturday, a few hours before the UEFA Champions League final between English Premier League sides Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Bafana Bafana legend Steven Pienaar was also at the event, as well as celebrities such as DJ Naves, Lunga Shabalala, Maps Maponyane and Spectacula.

It was Sundowns striker Sekotlong, who was on loan to Black Leopards in the second half of the past season, who won the challenge.
