Throwback Thursday

TBT: When Moriri & Co Dominated Barca

Mamelodi Sundowns fans will have vivid memories of FC Barcelona’s first visit to Mzansi shores over 11 years ago.

The match was a spectacle for ecstatic fans who witnessed a certain Surprise Moriri run riot against the Catalan giants.

Frank Rikjaard did not hold back when he unleashed the wrath of the mighty Barcelona on Sundowns. The Dutchman brought along the likes of superstar Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto’o and Deco.

They were in for a surprise when Surprise Moriri opened the scoring with a neat finish past a hapless Victor Valdez who could only watch the ball trickle into the back of the net.

Despite Moriri’s brilliance, Downs were eventually ousted by Barca courtesy of goals by Santiago Ezquerro and Marc Crosas with the match ending 2-1 in favour of Barca.

Nevertheless, it was a sporting spectacle that will linger in the hearts of Mzansi fans for years to come.

Check it out!
