Downs Coach Reacts To Late Show In MTN8 Semis

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena was pleased to leave the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium with an away goal after playing in some tough conditions.

The Brazilians fell behind after six minutes thanks to Nqobeka Dlamini's strike, but they will take an advantage into the second leg thanks to Pavol Safranko's equaliser in the final five minutes.

Mokwena praised the side's resilience to keep going after grabbing a late away goal.

"Difficult game against a very good side. A wounded side that lost against SuperSport. Good resilience from our team. Very good fight," ," the co-coach told SuperSport after the game.

"Very good character and very important not to lose because it allows us to keep going and prepare for the second leg."

Mokwena went on to explain the second-half substitutions that went on to change the outcome.

"We changed things a little bit. We went with Kutumela and Pavol. We tried to change the structure slightly. It allowed us to keep them.

"Also the conditions didn't help much. We don't want to make excuses. We are a passing team. When you play against the wind, especially in the first-half, your build ups are a little bit compromised.

"We got the equaliser and the away goal, which is very important and extremely crucial."
