The Best & Worst Of Downs v Thanda Royal Zulu

Mamelodi Sundowns eased their way into the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup against Thanda Royal Zulu, but who were the best and worst performers on the night?

The Brazilians found it tough for large periods of the game against the National First Division outfit, but captain fantastic, Alje Schut, rose to the occasion to head us into the lead, before the ever-reliable Teko Modise sealed the win from the penalty spot.

The introduction of Hlompho Kekana in the first half really changed our play, as Thanda were attacking through the middle, and credit must go to Pitso Mosimane for that change.

The Three Brazilians Who Impressed:

Teko Modise -  Sundowns' talisman for many years now, he stepped up with an assist and well-taken penalty in a tough encounter at Loftus

Alje Schut - Besides opening the scoring for Sundowns, the Skipper was solid in the heart of the defence and frustrated the Thanda forwards.

Siyanda Zwane - Impressed in the defence alongside Schut and he picked up the Man of the Match award.

The Three Who Disappointed:

Anthony Laffor - Hardly showed up in the first half and was sacrificed for Hlompho Kekana in the first half.

Khama Billiat - Not the usual performance we see from Billiat, he was quiet for large parts of the game.

Kudakwashe Mahachi - Much like Billiat, was hardly in the game but showed glimpses of what he can do.

Who were your best and worst performers against Thanda Royal Zulu?
