A number of South African footballers have died unnatural deaths while at the top of their game. But Senzo Meyiwa, killed on Sunday night, was the first high-profile, active footballer to die after being shot since Aaron "Roadblock" Makhathini, of Moroka Swallows, was killed in 1985 . Two other Bafana players whose deaths shocked the nation were Gift Leremi and Lesley Manyathela. Both were killed in car accidents. Leremi died just over seven years ago in a high-speed crash near Alberton, on the East Rand, shortly after returning home from playing for Mamelodi Sundowns in an African Confederation Cup match in Cameroon. Four years before that, Pirates' Lesley "Slow Poison" Manyathela died on his way home to Limpopo to visit his family. He was just 22, set for a lengthy career in the national side and was due to go for trials in France. Phumlani Dindi, who won a single Bafana cap, also died in a car accident.

ZIMBABWEAN winger and former Chicken Inn and Highlanders player Kudakwashe Mahachi will remain with Mamelodi Sundowns this season after French giants Monaco told his South African side that he was good but too expensive for them. Mahachi impressed on a recent trial with Radamel Falcao’s employers but the clubs could not agree on a transfer fee, a well-placed source told kickoff. It is claimed that Sundown’s valuation of the player was not what Monaco expected for a player they believe still needed to be polished to become complete player. “The boy did well and Monaco was very impressed during his trials. However, both teams could not agree on terms regarding the transfer fee,” says the source. Mahachi is back at Chloorkop in South Africa as he seeks to win the favour of Coach Pitso Mosimane. He has been handed jersey number 43 and was on the bench last night as Sundowns lost 1-0 to Ajax Cape Town. The 20-year-old signed with the Absa PSL champions during the January Transfer Window, but spent the ...

Highlanders braced for player exodus A player exodus is looming at Highlanders that could force coach Kelvin Kaindu to seriously invade the transfer market next month. The biggest loss would be on-loan winger Kuda Mahachi who would be teaming up with his parent South African club Mamelodi Sundowns. Also certain to be leaving are Midfielder Peter Moyo who has already signed for Mpumalanga Black Aces while Milton Ncube is already on the books of Ajax Cape Town. The goalkeeping department is likely to be plunged into the biggest crisis as Ariel Sibanda is reported to be on his way to Chippa United while his colleague Munyaradzi Diya is believed to be following Moyo to Aces. This leaves Kaindu with only one experienced goalkeeper Njabulo Nyoni and would be in search of a reliable cover. “At the moment we are only certain that three guys are leaving but we cannot talk about who will be replacing the guys who will replace them. Of course they will be replaced,” Kaindu said. “They have to be replaced and w ...

18 foreigners at Sundowns. Mamelodi Sundowns have a grand total of 18 foreigners on their books, and next season will have difficulties in terms of allocating their five spots for players from abroad. But seven of the 18 hold permanent South African residency, and that includes club captain Alje Schut and Glenn Verbauwhede, who both qualified through the controversial financial independence loophole. Of the five foreigners farmed out on loan, only Denis Onyango holds local residency. And if they are recalled, Sundowns will have to release some players to meet the PSL quota for imports.

HIGHLANDERS LAND MAHACHI Peter Ndlovu sways loan move February 1, 2014 Headlines, Top Stories Kudakwashe Mahachi Lovemore Dube Sports Editor HIGHLANDERS have completed the sensational capture of Kudakwashe Mahachi on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns. The winger, who starred for Zimbabwe as they reached the semi-finals of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) before bowing out to Libya on Wednesday, joined Sundowns this week from Chicken Inn. But the Brazilians immediately sent him out on loan to Highlanders for an initial period of six months. Sundowns were forced to loan Mahachi because they have exhausted their quota of foreign players. They already have Khama Billiat and Cuthbert Malajila on their books. Champions Dynamos had been courting Sundowns to loan them Mahachi, but Highlanders legend Peter Ndlovu — now the team manager of the South African club —weighed heavily in taking the 21- year-old starlet to his boyhood club. Highlanders will unveil Mahachi next week — a great piece of business by th ...
Mushekwi scores crucial goal in Belgium Cup Zimbabwe international Nyasha Mushekwi was on target for his Belgian side KV Oostende as they drew 1-1 with Lokeren last night in the 1st leg semi-final of the Belgian Cup. Mushekwi scored KV Oostende crucial away goal in the 17th minute of the game, after KV Oostende intercepted the ball in midfield to set up the striker who made no mistake. KV Oostende looked dangerous in the counter attack according to reports and Mushekwi pulled a great save from the opposition keeper to deny him a brace in the first half. Lokeren equalised in the 63rd minute through Lokeren. The result means Mushekwi and his team hold the slight advantage with their away goal in the return fixture. Gent and Waregem will contest the other semi-final today. Mushekwi is on a season loan deal from South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns.

South African striker, Dino Ndlovu, will be keen to fast-track his Maccabi Haifa exit after he was racially abused after a training session in Israel. The 23-year-old has had a tough time in recent months, with head coach, Arik Benado, failing to give him a chance to prove himself in the first team, despite his impressive goal tally last season. Now, with the Israeli Transfer Window opening on January 9th, the forward will be hoping to speed up his departure after an unsavoury encounter with some of the Haifa supporters. The player was abused during Saturday’s training session, with fans throwing fireworks at him and telling him to go home. Then, on the way out of training Ndlovu was threatened by fans who allegedly told him to go back to home to Uganda and were attempting to goad him into fighting with them. After driving off it is alleged that the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic man has also received death threats from fans who have gotten hold of his contact details and called him on ...
Sundowns could lose Mushekwi for free January 2, 2014 in Sport TSHWANE — South African football giants Mamelodi Sundowns will definitely lose Zimbabwean international Nyasha Mushekwi for free if they fail to sell him during the January Transfer Window, as it’s unclear whether he still wants to return to the club. By Goal Sundowns media officer Thulani Thuswa has told Goal that the club is still in the dark about Nyasha Mushekwi’s future. Mushekwi is currently on a season-long loan at Belgian side KV Oostende, and his contract with Sundowns comes to an end next June. “As Mamelodi Sundowns, we are not sure whether the player will still want to play for us or not,” Thuswa told Goal. “But he’s still our player because his contract expires next year June. It will be up to him to decide if he still wants to play for Sundowns after his loan spell in Belgium,” he said. The 26-year-old Mushekwi will be eligible to sign a pre-contract with a team of his choice when the January window opens today sho ...

Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns are the ONLY two South African teams to have participated in the Caf Champions League final. Beat That
The recent emergence of aggressive and perhaps over-the-top tackling appears to be on the increase in the PSL. A spate of injuries has occurred with certain teams being more affected than others. In last Tuesday’s match against Mpumalanga Black Aces, Orlando Pirates midfielder Mpho Makola appeared to be lucky to escape a broken ankle after a debatable mistimed lunge by Clifford Ngobeni. The offence went unpunished by the referee. Read: Bucs Beat Aces In Thriller Onyekachi Okonkwo also seemed to stamp on Pirates defender Rooi Mahamutsa earlier in the clash in what appeared to be an unprovoked act. Such an act is generally punishable by a red card, however the Nigerian escaped serious censure. Additionally, Maritzburg United’s Ruben Cloete recently suffered a fractured cheekbone after a dangerous collision with Platinum Stars defender Vuyo Mere. In a recent clash between Bloemfontein Celtic and Mamelodi Sundowns, Hlompho Kekana seemed lucky not to suffer a broken leg after what looked to be an over the ...
PSL flavour to qualifiers ANOTHER large number of South African-based footballers have headed off around the continent for World Cup action at the weekend, but only a few still have any chance left of making the finals in Brazil next year. Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda and Zambia are the countries who still hold out hope and who have players from the Premier Soccer League and National First Division in their squads. Ethiopia will be looking to new Bidvest Wits striker Getaneh Kebede to help get them the win they need over the Central African Republic on Saturday to finish ahead of Bafana Bafana in Group A. Victory for the Ethiopians on neutral turf in Brazzaville, Congo, will be enough to ensure they progress to the last phase of Africa's qualifiers for the 2014 finals.

'Players forced to quit at 22' Sello Rabothata South African football players are now being forced to retire at the age of 22 years. That is according to local legend and Black Prince of soccer, Jomo Sono. And he has received support from former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana defender Lovers Mohlala, who also believes that the ruling has the potential to stifle the development of the South African game. Sono spoke during an interview with Sowetan Soccer magazine (now on sale) regarding his team's failure to make a quick return to the Premier Soccer League following their relegation in the 2011-12 season. The Jomo Cosmos chairman and head coach says: "We didn't have a good season. We thought we were ready, only to find out the hard way that we were not. We had to get rid of a number of seasoned players because of the National First Division rule which requires teams to start at all times with five players who are under the age of 23 years." Last season teams had to sign players born in or after 1990. ...

Mamelodi Sundowns could become a ‘foreign heaven’ in the new season as they face up to a complex challenge of balancing out the number of players not eligible to play for South Africa. That number has already ballooned to a dozen according to the list of players that have been confirmed to be having contracts at the club. As it stands, Sundowns still have contracts with all five players that made up their foreign quota last season – the Ghana duo of Mumuni Abubakar and Emmanuel Baffour, along with the Zimbabwean pair of Nyasha Mushekwi and Method Mwanjali, as well as Mozambican winger Elias Pelembe. Also still on their books are Ugandan goalkeeper Denis Onyango, Dutchman Alje Schut, long- serving Zimbabwean Esrom Nyandoro and Liberian striker Anthony Laffor – all of whom are registered as non-foreigners after attaining South African permanent residence. With permanent residence a player is registered as non-foreigner, but continues to play for his country of birth. Added to that list of nine are t ...
Emmanuel Baffour should come back home he is wasting his talent with South African side Mamelodi Sundowns
WARRIORS striker, Cuthbert Malajila, believes in hard work and is confident that there is room for improvement in his game as he braces for a move to South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns next season. Malajila finished third in the race for the Golden Boot in South Africa’s Absa Premiership and is set to move from modest side Maritzburg United to giants Mamelodi Sundowns next season. He has only been in South Africa for one-and-half season but his work rate and natural instincts in front of goal have made him an increasingly sought-after commodity. The 27-year-old bagged 10 goals in the just-ended season, and was only three shy of Golden Boot winner Katlego Mashego of Moroka Swallows who pocketed R25 000 for the achievement. Despite missing the accolade, the former Highlanders and Dynamos striker yesterday said he was still aiming for better performances in the future. “Hard work is the hallmark of my career. I have been putting all my effort in everything and I believe there is still room for improv ...
Bidvest Wits CEO Jose Ferreira has reacted angrily to a report that new coach Gavin Hunt will receive a monthly salary of R750 000. “It is not ridiculous, it is obscene! And it borders on outright maliciousness. “Some of the top coaches in the world don't come close to the suggested numbers and only someone with a wild imagination can suggest that any South African club can afford that kind of a package.” Kaizer Chiefs' Double-winning coach Stuart Baxter and his Mamelodi Sundowns counterpart Pitso Mosimane are understood to be the best-paid coaches in the PSL. Baxter is earning a salary estimated to be between R450 000 and R500 000 a month, while Mosimane's salary is believed to be closer to R600 000. Hunt himself has said: “I know three or four coaches in the PSL who earn far better than I do.” A more likely figure would be somewhere in the region of R500 000 per month – still great money for the former SuperSport coach. However, Ferreira insists that Hunt's salary will remain confidential.(K ...
Method Mwanjali faces a bleak future at South African Premiership giants Mamelodi Sundowns following revelations that the former Warriors skipper is yet to be offered a new contract following the expiry of his initial deal at the end of the 2012-13 Absa Premiership season. The Zimbabwean international had an initial three-year deal at the Brazilians since his arrival at Sundowns in 2010 together with fellow countrymen and former CAPS United teammates Nyasha Mushekwi and Lionel Mtizwa. Mwanjali’s profile at the Brazilians even rose to a high when he was named the Mamelodi Sundowns captain but it has emerged that the utility man could be forced to spend the off-season break waiting anxiously on the wings as he has not yet been offered a fresh deal by the big-spending club. While Sundowns were quick to exercise their first option privilege when Mushekwi’s contract expired and also offered a fresh two year-deal to Nyandoro, it has emerged that coach Pitso Mosimane and the club’s management are still mum ...
Its a beautiful. Who can forget Mamelodi Sundowns remarkable South African record in the 2012 Nedbank Cup when they beat Powerlines FC by 24 goals to nil. Tonight at 8pm the Nedbank Cup kicks off with Mamelodi Sundowns taking on Ajax Cape Town. What's your score predictions?
ZIMBABWE international Khama Billiat is set to extend his contract at South African Premiership football side Ajax Cape Town. According to Soccer Laduma, the Urban Warriors are keen to retain their star player whose contract ends in 2016. The club has reportedly stated that the Zimbabwean forward would not be joining any of the South African sides that had shown interest as they are targeting to sell him to overseas clubs. The Urban Warriors have slapped a R10 million prize tag on the talented forward who, in January, attracted the interest of cash-rich Mamelodi Sundowns. Sundowns though are now expected to tie up a deal with fellow Zimbabwean Cuthbert Malajila and have also set their eyes on Supersport United striker Kermit Erasmus. Billiat has been one of Ajax’s top performers in the Premier Soccer League this season in their successful fight against relegation and his form has understandably attracted interest. Media reports had also suggested the Urban Warriors could be persuaded to accept a swap de ...
Pitso: Downs deserve some blame Pitso Mosimane has hinted that Mamelodi Sundowns have played as big a role as any in hiking the transfer prices in South African soccer. The Brazilians, backed by president Patrice Motsepe’s billions, have often been accused of paying over the top prices to secure a target – a player who then often just winds up sitting on the bench on or in the stands. And it’s not only the transfer fees – Downs also offer among the biggest salaries on offer, with Elias Pelembe and Katlego Mphela reportedly just two of the players making a killing at Chloorkop. The Brazilians are also allegedly preparing to sign a cheque worth R3million for Zimbabwean striker Cuthbert Malajila, while Aubrey Ngoma is also expected to join from Orlando Pirates. Mosimane says his club should carry some of the blame for skewing the transfer market. “The transfer market in South Africa at this point in time is really crazy,” he says. “If you look at what is happening in Europe and look at what we ...
I'll never forget where am from. Phala. Phala has wished Platinum Stars well for next season as he looks forward to a new chapter in his career - with Supersport United next season. The speedy winger, who started his career at Silver Stars in 2006, caught the eye of Kaizer Chiefs with his guile and pace. Phala was tipped to become a star for the Soweto team by taking over the role played by veteran winger Arthur Zwane, but after two seasons he made the move to Mamelodi Sundowns in a bid to gain more regular game time. At Chloorkop, the Bafana Bafana midfielder hardly featured for the Brazilians and disappeared off the up-and-coming-stars radar, before returning to the club - now called Platinum Stars. In the current PSL season Phala has grown from just another quick winger to an integral part of the South African national team, while his performances at club level propelled his team to second place in the PSL standings. However, the Rustenburg side were literally too slow to renew his contract and SuperSp ...

wrote Baxter To *** His SA Internationals Kaizer Chiefs had six of their squad members participating in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, as part of Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana squad, however the team has regrouped as the league resumes. On Tuesday, Chiefs take on Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium and coach Stuart Baxter is uncertain whether he should field his South African internationals or rest them. However, with the importance of the game, the coach will undoubtedly want his best eleven in his starting line-up. He told the Siya crew that he will have to analyse each individual player at training, and see how they are feeling. “It is a difficult one for me. It is a difficult situation right now. The players could be fatigued but I have to ask myself whether they can continue playing and rest them at a later stage or rest them now. “For now it will depend on what I see at training and talk to the players and hear what they feel. We also have to hear from the physician and get his advice. .. ...
This season Kaizer Chiefs has never won a Quarter-final's game: lost 4-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 and lost 3-2 to Bidvest Wits on Telkom Knockout Cup, so my fellow South African did you really expect Kaizer Chiefs to take the country to the next round ? Good morning.
LIMPING DEMBARE FACE SUNDOWNS DYNAMOS’ Caf Champions League preparedness comes under the spotlight tomorrow afternoon when they square up against South African football giants Mamelodi Sundowns at Gwanzura Stadium. Report by Henry Mhara The road has been rocky, to say the least. Denver Mukamba, Rodreck Mutuma and Simba Sithole are gone. There has been no training in Kariba as planned and striker Francesco Zvikumbawire has not been paid for to start his tenure at the league champions. The league champions have played three preparatory matches so far ahead of their Champions League preliminary home clash against Lesotho’s Correctional Service in two weeks’ time. They beat Division One side Mushowani Stars 4-1 before playing a goalless draw against Premiership newcomers Tripple B last Sunday. On Thursday, Dynamos overcame fellow Premiership side Black Mambas 3-1 at Morris Depot, but all these teams have not been typical African Safari opposition, honestly speaking. The biggest crisis at Dynamos current ...
THE decision by the Highlanders Football Club executive to delay announcing their full technical bench for the senior and junior teams might haunt the Bulawayo giants later in the season and even the future. Highlanders’ first team Assistant Coach Bekithemba Ndlovu, goalkeepers’ trainer Tembo Chuma and welfare manager Amin Soma-Phiri were on one-year contracts so did the juniors teams coaches, which expired last year and were not renewed. Daniel Ngwenya, the Under-14 coach, Gift Lunga Jnr, the Under-16 coach, Siphatho Ncube for the Under-18 and developmental side gaffer Mark Mathe as well as juniors’ manager Smart Moyo are all jobless at the moment. The challenges of operating with a lone technical man were evidently clear before and during the match against South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns which was played at Barbourfields Stadium on Wednesday that saw Highlanders losing for the first time at Emagumeni in a long time. Zambian coach Kelvin Kaindu, the only member of the technical team who sig ...
South African Premiership glamarous side Mamelodi Sundowns jetted into the country yesterday afternoon for a series of friendlies against Highlanders,Caps and defending champions Dynamos. The Pretoria based side will take on 2012 Premier League runner's up Highlanders @ BF tomorrow before flying to the capital were they will square off against Caps United on Friday and Dynamos on Sunday. Sundowns are using these matches to prepare for the second round of the Absa Premiership which resumes immediaty after the Afcon finals being held in South Africa. The Pitso Musimane coached side started the 2012-2013 season horribly,losing matches with terrible consistency but things changed when the former bafana bafana gaffer took over the reins from Dutch man Roy Neeskens. Sundowns currently butter the bread of Esrom Nyandoro and former warriors players Nyasha Mushekwi and Method Mwanjali
Simba Sithole set to join Supersport DYNAMOS striker Simba Sithole is a step closer to making a return to the Supa Diski after impressing former South African soccer champions Supersport United. Sithole was on trials at the Pretoria-based side for one week under the watchful eye of the club’s head coach Gavin Hunt and former Warriors defender Kaitano Tembo, who is now the team’s Assistant Coach. Sithole, who might still have a point to prove following a frustrating stint at Mamelodi Sundowns during the 2011-2012 season, featured for the Tshwane-based side in a four-team tournament at the weekend and scored two goals. The friendly tournament also involved Denver Mukamba’s Bidvest Wits, Platinum Stars and Moroka Swallows, and SuperSport emerged as the overall winners after beating Swallows on penalties in the final. Tembo yesterday was full of praise for the Dynamos striker Sithole and said Matsantsantsa were keen on engaging him as he fits the bill for the kind of player they are seeking to sharpen t ...
Sundowns names squad to play Zim clubs South African Premiership side, Mamelodi Sundowns, have named a 57-member delegation which includes 32 players for next week's three international friendly matches against Zimbabwean sides Highlanders, Caps United and Dynamos in Harare and Bulawayo. The squad includes three Zimbabweans - Nyasha Mushekwi, Esrom Nyandoro and Method Mwanjali. Mwanjali was recently cleared by ZIFA early this week to play despite his Asiagate match-fixing ban which he has appealed against. Sundowns will arrive in Bulawayo on Monday for the first match set for Barbourfields against Highlanders on Wednesday. The South African side will then play Caps United on February 1 in Harare before clashing with Dynamos two days later. Sundowns are preparing in Polokwane for the matches.

Mwanjali cleared for Sundowns’ Zimbabwe tour BANNED Warriors defender Method Mwanjali will feature for Mamelodi Sundowns when the South African giants tour Zimbabwe for three matches next week, Zifa has confirmed. The Absa Premiership side are set to arrive in the country early next week for a series of friendlies.

Zifa vice-president Ndumiso Gumede yesterday cleared the air on the former Warriors captain saying he will be allowed to take part in the three matches. “We as Zifa cleared Mwanjali with the South African F ...
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) would like to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Abie Krok. Krok, one of the founding members of the PSL, spent a number of years as the chairman of Absa Premiership club, Mamelodi Sundowns where he presided over one of their most successful periods. PSL Chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza said: “Abie will always be remembered for the role he played in South African football. His contribution to the game will never be forgotten. He might be gone, but his legacy will live for a long time.

Benjani training at Pompey Despite South African Premiership football club Supersport United’s reported interest in him, Benjani Mwaruwari was spotted at English third-tier side Portsmouth training yesterday. The Zimbabwean was photographed being put through his paces at Eastleigh. However, according to portsmouth.co.uk, he is just keeping fit at the club. Although he was originally linked to South African clubs Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, Bidvest Wits and his former club Jomo Cosmos, Benjani had been training at SuperSport on and off since September, and was close to putting pen to paper on a number of occasions. SuperSport coach Gavin Hunt said at the end of October that despite being highly impressed with Mwaruwari at training, the club could not afford his salary. However, the player said: “To be honest, I didn’t ask for much money from SuperSport, maybe I didn’t sign for a reason I don’t know.” Mwaruwari, who moved from his native Zimbabwe to South Africa to join Jo ...

Melusi Zulu's raw talent earned his place in The Chance Final 16. His determination to succeed earned his first pro contract. After impressing the coaches at The Chance Global Finals, Melusi's journey continues with five time South African champions, Mamelodi Sundowns FC. See how he took his opportunity in Barcelona:
I'm not that much into football/ Soccer, but I have great interest in South African football & Mamelodi Sundowns is the team I support, and I couldn't help but analyse what is it that make/break this team. Ok, 1st things 1st, Sundowns has the best paid players in the PSL, best coach, best development team I'm talking Joas Magolego, Mark Anderson, Zane Moosa, etc, but we still don't get good results. Question is what are we doing wrong? is it the coach? is it the players?. Here's something you probably didn't know... Sundowns is the only team in the PSL that has a team tasked to scout new talent/ players &bring them on board. Other teams like Pirates/ Chiefs, it's the team manager/ owner who are responsible for this. Now at Sundowns, we have TROT MOLOTO who is responsible for this &gets us high profile players (with the pressure of agents) which causes redundance in the team. We have excellent development but none of these players make it to the 1st team coz we have so many high profile players in the 1st ...
I feel sorry for Thandani Ntshumayelo... Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates always have this thing of destroying South African talent...
Viera Set For Bucs 28 August 2012 Lehlohonlo Masalesa Former Wits midfielder, Lehlohonlo ‘Viera’ Masalesa, is on the verge of signing with treble-winning champions, Orlando Pirates. Pirates management have confirmed to the Siya crew that they are currently in serious talks with the holding midfielder and that a deal could happen shortly. The player’s agent, Ralph Nkomo, recently told the crew that there had been interest in the 20-year-old from German side, Greuther Furth, who are currently hoping to sign Nyasha Mushekwi from Mamelodi Sundowns. However, the deal with Bucs has been agreed between Viera’s South African representatives and it is they who have aided him in his possible move to Mayfair. Viera, who has represented South Africa at both under-17 and under-23 level, is thought to have favoured a move to Kaizer Chiefs, although it appears that it is Augusto Palacios and not Stuart Baxter who will have him at his disposal this season. It remains to be seen how much game time the talented mid ...
Mamelodi Sundowns continued the good run in preseason matches played in Swaziland, as the Chloorkop side beat Manzini Sundowns and Manzini Wanderers in two successive matches played on Wednesday afternoon as they wound down their pre-season camp. In the first match Sundowns faced Manzini Wanderers. The Brazillians cruised to a comfortable 5-0 win, with burly striker, Nyasha Mushekwi scoring a hat-trick. New Ghanaian recruit Emmanuel Baffour found the net for the first time in The Brazilian colours. Richard Henyekane also scored. The second match was not smooth-sailing for the visiting side, however. Their opponents, Swazi namesakes Manzini Sundowns, showed them no respect and gave as much as they took from their South African counterparts. Johan Neeskens’ side were tested but nonetheless managed to walk away 2-1 victors. Hardman, Hlompho Kekana, who scored a blinder in the Mbombela Super Cup against Sivutsa Stars and Method Mwanjale, who also scored in that tournament, continued their good run in pre-se ...
