With the game seemingly headed for another penalty shoot-out at the Makhulong Stadium, Makgalwa stepped up and curled home a fine strike to hand Sundowns a 1-0 win over Highlands Park.

Mosimane was clearly delighted and ran to the striker to join in the celebrations after the goal, which he says he does not do with his senior players.

"Ja, you get emotional when a youngster [Keletso Makgalwa] comes in and scores," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

"I don't run like that to your Sirinos and them but I mean Keletso, he's unbelievable. He's got that, you don't give him a chance in the box to face [the goal] he can finish."

Mosimane noted before the game that he wanted to avoid extra-time as they take on Orlando Pirates in the Absa Premiership on Tuesday night.

"We went where we didn't want to go, that's why [Motjeka] Madisha's knee is heavily strapped because we have a big one on Tuesday. I didn't want to go to extra-time but look you can take it to be honest.

"Ricardo [Nascimento] was struggling also, Madisha heavily-strapped but I had Wayne [Arense] and Mosa [Lebusa] on the bench if anything happens," he went on.

"Ja tough game, Highlands is tough hey. We're coming back here again in a few days' time. Ja this man-to-man of theirs, they mark hey. You really have to play out of your skin here. That's why 'Vila' [Sibusiso Vilakazi] has been playing all the games, I just saw that he must come off, because I'm saving him for Tuesday."
