The Lions of North caused the second upset in the quarter-finals after Wayde Jooste's solitary strike secured a 1-0 at Orlando Stadium.
 
The victory did not come easy as the visitors were forced in to making three injury-enforced changes during the game, one of which was bringing on Jooste in the first half.
 
“I thought we were a little bit lucky in some instances. You win some of the games like this but you lose games like this as well,” Da Gama told SuperSport after the match.
 
“I thought the guys defended really well, we worked very hard. The technical team must take credit for a very good tactical display,” he continued.
 
“From a tactical perspective we nullified them. The Mulengas, the Lorch-s, those are x-factors, we negated their attacks. But all credit must go to the players, they worked their socks off. I mean we’ve had three forced changes with injuries. Luck was not on our side, but these things happen in football.”
