Dynamos target Sundowns friendly



As part of their preparations for the Champions League, Dynamos are trying to set up a friendly with South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns.

DeMbare, the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions, want to play the big-spending Brazilians in Harare in February.

The South African Premier Soccer League is currently on a break to accommodate the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, taking place in the country from January 19 to February 10.

Downs, sitting in mid-table following a miserable start to the season, will resume their domestic campaign against high-flying Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on February 15.

Dynamos chairman Webster Chikengezha is hopeful they can set up a date with the Tshwane-based titans, who are managed by former Bafana Bafana boss Pitso Mosimane, before mounting their challenge for continental honours.

“We have proposed a friendly against Sundowns because we want to keep the team active just before the Champions League starts,” said Chikengezha.

“We won’t really have that much time so playing against top South African teams will help us a lot. We want to do well in Africa,” concluded Chikengezha.
