Downs win second game on Zim tour



Mamelodi Sundowns won easily the second game of their Zimbabwe tour when they beat CAPS United 4-1 in Gwanzura on Friday.

They were 2-0 up at halftime after wingback Sibusiso Khumalo hit a rising shot into the roof of the net after being set up by Eleazor Rodgers in the 24th minute.

Nine minutes later Themba Zwane latched onto a loose ball to lob a second goal over the CAPS United goalkeeper Itayi Chiwara.

The Brazilians’ skipper Teko Modise, who was outstanding in the midfield, engineered the two second half goals, setting up Zwane for the fourth.

CAPS United got a consolation goal when Leonard Fiyado fired a powerful drive that beat Liberty Chirava, a Zimbabwean on trial with Sundowns and acting as a guest goalkeeper on the tour.

Chirava plays for Chicken Inn and has been drafted after Dennis Onyango picked up an injury.

Sundowns rested their Zimbabwean trio of Method Mwanjali, Esrom Nyandoro and Nyasha Mushekwi for Friday’s match but they could be fielded in the next match against Dynamos at Gwanzura on Sunday.

Coach Pitso Mosimane, who is the head coach at Sundowns, said the match gave them good match practice following their 2-0 win over Highlanders at Bulawayo on Wednesday.

“I think we are getting enough practice. I liked the environment, people are coming to the games and we are trying to make out our team.

“We played a different team today to the one that played Highlanders, giving all the players a chance and at the same time assessing our brothers (Zimbabwean teams)

“It’s good match temperament, Zimbabwean football is good. If it had not been good we would not have come here,” said Mosimane.

Mosimane said he is expecting a tougher match against Dynamos, who retained their Zimbabwe league title in November

“I played everybody in the last two games and in the last game against Dynamos we will go for it.?

Mushekwi scored the two goals for Sundowns last week in their match against Highlanders, runners-up in the Zimbabwe league last season.
