Goals from Jeremy Brockie and Themba Zwane handed Sundowns the inaugural Shell Helix Ultra Cup at the FNB Stadium.

Mosimane revealed he was impressed with Anthony Laffor, Kennedy Mweene and debutants  Sphelele Mkhulise and Lyle Lakay.
 
“I’m very impressed with the discipline and the tactical organisation on the game. I’m happy for the guys who have not been playing to get an opportunity,” Mosimane told SABC TV after the match.
 
“Especially for Anthony Laffor, we have been waiting for him [he is] an important player. He looked revived. I’m [also] happy for our youngster who comes from the academy Sphelele [Mkhulise]. He’s a very good player, on the starting line up [he was] not afraid.”
 
“But all in all you cannot be too boastful this is a pre-season cup it doesn’t mean anything. We need to get back to catch our rhythm. I’m very happy to give other guys a chance to play. We dropped nine players from the team that played in Togo.
 
“I’m also happy for Lyle Lakay coming in at left-back. He showed good signs, Kennedy Mweene was brilliant. I’m disappointed with the goal, it should have been 2-0 to be honest,”
