Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Mamelodi Sundowns' exit in the MTN8 at the hands of Cape Town City.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers on the day,

Best:
 
Peter Leeuwenburgh – 7/10
 
Kept the Citizens in the game for large parts despite conceding early in the first half. Guided his defence very well throughout and was a stern during the shoot-out too.
 
Craig Martin- 7/10
 
The winger was troublesome at times with his pace out on the wide areas, and one of his runs nearly paid off with a goal early in the first half.
 
Toni Silva – 7.5/10
 
Silva was menacing up-front, just as he was in the first leg. He scored the only goal of the game and was a constant threat throughout.
 
Jose Ali Meza – 7/10
 
Like Silva, tormented the defence and dominated the wide areas especially the left side using his strength, awareness and skill to great effect. He set up Silva's goal.
 
Teko Modise – 7/10
 
The veteran raised his hand as one of City’s standout performers from the word go, with Hlompho Kekana and Tiyani Mabunda having little influence.
 
Wayne Arendse – 7/10
 
Solid. That’s the performance of the defender who made light work at times of the attacking threats posed forward by the Citizens.
 
Worst:
 
Mosa Lebusa – 5/10
 
All over the place. Never got settled and was susceptible to conceding way too many fouls in and around the dangerous areas.
 
Thamsanqa Mkhize – 4/10
 
The full-back was a virtual absentee. Never really provided the offensive plus to Benni McCarthy as usually the case and struggled to contain Meza.
 
Kwanda Mngonyama – 5/10
 
Ball-watching most of the time, unsettled and wasn’t in control of situations as usual as Silva entirely dominated his defensive area.
 
Themba Zwane – 5/10
 
Didn’t come to the party from an attacking point of view as he never combined effectively well with Meza and Silva.
