Chiefs/Pirates/South Africa Congratulate Downs

Without being too hasty, because there are still three group matches left for Mamelodi Sundowns in the CCL, congratulations still seem in order. The Chloorkop outfit showed true grit to win a tough match against Enyimba of Nigeria 2-1. It seems, for an instant, the supporters of other clubs have downed their weapons and wished the Brazilians well.

"Thanks, Downs, for flying the country's flag high. #Khosi4life." – Manchester Chiefs

"Go Brazilians, make us proud citizens. You're representing SA as a whole. Bucs4ever." – Daniel Madenza Kutumela

While many supporters around South Africa have congratulated Downs this morning, there are still those who warn against getting overexcited following the victory, and note that even though the Brazilians are representing Africa, it is still in the country's interest to stay cool-headed.

"Congratulations on the win against Enyimba, the South African flag is raised very high. Just disappointed in those celebrations after the game. There are more games to be played, so I think it's premature to celebrate the win as if we reached the final. I'm saying 'we' as a proud South African, not as a Sundowns supporter." – Nelinha1

While we must not jump the gun, it is still impressive to see two inspiring showings from Sundowns so far in this tournament.

Do you think Downs can go all the way?
