A Tough Match

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena celebrated his anniversary in style on Tuesday, as he led his team to the semifinals of the African Football League.

The 24th of October marked a year since he took over as the club’s sole head coach after sharing the post with Manqoba Mngqithi since the departure of Pitso Mosimane back in 2020.

However, it was not an easy match for the Brazilians, who hosted Petro de Luanda in the second leg of the quarterfinals at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

Sundowns had a 2-0 advantage from the first leg in Angola, but they faced an early setback when Mothobi Mvala was sent off in the fourth minute for a dangerous tackle.

The visitors tried to capitalise on their numerical superiority, but they could not break through the solid defence of Sundowns, who held on to a goalless draw and secured their place in the last four of the competition.

A Lucrative Reward

With the victory, Mokwena managed to celebrate his anniversary with style, as the Brazilians are guaranteed to receive at least $1.7 million(R32 million) for reaching the semis.

The winners of the tournament get a whopping $4 million(R74 million), which would be a huge boost for the club’s finances.

Sundowns will face a tough challenge in the semifinals, as they will take on Al Ahly.

The Egyptian giants are led by former Sundowns star Percy Tau.
