Zwane, otherwise known as “Mshishi”, was so outstanding against Al Ahly that his coach Pitso Mosimane likened him to Barcelona and Spain legend Andres Iniesta.
It was a stunning victory by Sundowns who were in total control against African football’s most successful club, having won a record eight Champion League titles over the years.
The loss virtually ended Al Ahly’s hopes of winning a record ninth African Champions League title.
When Mamelodi Sundowns scored their fifth goal against Al-Ahly through Phakamani Mahlambi, coach Pitso Mosimane ran down the touchline to celebrate with his players.
Mamelodi Sundowns welcome Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the first leg of the Caf Champions League quarterfinals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium today.
The message from Mosimane to his players was clear: “score as many goals as possible and shut the back door.”
