Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns Off To Winning Starts In Future Champions Gauteng International Tournament

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 19, 2018 08:07 PM
Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns both got off to winning starts on the opening day of the Future Champions Gauteng International Tournament at the Nike Football Training Centre in Pimville, Soweto.
 
 
The junior competition got off to a flying start as the Buccaneers youth team replicated the senior side's current form with a 3-1 win over Namibian side Black Africa Hopsol, who had actually taken the lead through Oliver Baas.
 
However, Pirates found a strong response as Siyabonga Buda, Marx Hakeem and Augustine Mahlonoka all got on the scoresheet to seal the victory for the Soweto side.
 
 
Meanwhile, Sundowns also got off to a winning start as they dispatched Clube Brugge 2-1, with Thando Buthelezi grabbing a brace to leave Milan Vanacker's late goal as only a consolation for the Belgians.
 
Fellow South African side Bidvest Wits were unable to replicate their counterpart's result as they played to a goalless draw against Spartak Moscow of Russia.
 
Zambian side Nkana FC were denied a 0-0 draw late on in their clash against ADO Den Haag as the Dutch outfit won two penalties in the final five minutes, with captain Lorenzo van Kleef converting both.
 
Tuesday will see a further six matches take place (from 10h00 onward) as the Future Champions Gauteng International Tournament celebrates its 10th anniversary, with entrance to the Nike Football Training Centre free to the general public.
 
Monday’s Results:
 
Jomo Cosmos 0 Highlands Park 1 (Siyamamkela Ntame)
 
Mamelodi Sundowns 2 (Thando Buthelezi 2) Club Brugge 1 (Milan Vanacker pen)
 
ADO Den Haag 2 (Lorenzo van Kleef 2 pen) Nkana FC 0
 
Black Africa 1 (Oliver Baas) Orlando Pirates 3 (Siyabonga Buda, Marx Hakeem, Augustine Mahlonoka)
 
AC Reggiana 1 (Federico Ziveri) RCD Espanyol 1 (Oriol)
 
Spartak Moscow 0 Bidvest Wits 0
