Chiefs advanced to the last 16 of the Nedbank Cup, following their impressive 4-0 win against Edu Sport FC at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The Amakhosi showed their class in set-pieces, scoring all their goals via headers against Edu.  

Mthembu was the hero of the day with the three goals he scored against the side from the fourth-tier of South African football, while the other goal was scored by the returning Katlego Mphela.

“It was all worked out at practice and, above all, through extra training. The coach instructed us to work on our heading at goal. He worked with us to perfect the set-pieces. I am glad it all worked out.

"All glory goes to God. I am happy, but I will bear in mind to continue working hard for the sake of the team. I am happy for now. From here onwards, I hope to continue improving, score more goals and help the team win,” Mthembu told Chiefs’ official website.

Mthembu deservedly won the Man-of-the-Match award at the end of the game for his outstanding performance on the day. "Shaka Zulu" also tops the goal scoring chart early in the competition following his hat-trick.
