Flashback – When Sirino Met Barca's South American Greats

As one of the high-flying foreign stars in the PSL, we throw it back to the time when Mamelodi Sundowns star Gaston Sirino rubbed shoulders with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. Check it out!

While the 90 000-strong crowd at Soccer City were eager to see the likes of Messi, Suarez and Iniesta in action on home soil, the Downs players were no doubt keen to test themselves against the very best in the business.
