TBT: Dolly, Kekana Remember Downs’ Emphatic CAF 2016 Triumph

There was a sense of nostalgia on Tuesday from Mamelodi Sundowns players past and present, as it marked three years since the Brazilians’ emphatic CAF Champions League-winning campaign.

Downs’ victory was nothing short of a miracle after some administrative issues saw them reinstated into the tournament. Pitso Mosimane’s men then swept through the rest of the competition and eventually ousted finalists Zamalek over the two-legged affair.

The likes of captain Hlompho Kekana and former star winger Keagan Dolly, who formed part of the deadly ‘CBD’ trident, took to Instagram to share fond memories of the incredible feat.

Though the Brazilians have managed to get close in recent years, they are yet to replicate the incredible achievement of three years ago.
