Finally, South Africa can smile again. It took two eliminations and a default that resulted in a lifeline given to Mamelodi Sundowns, but they have begun to show their teeth in continental competition, and claim their spot as one of the most venomous teams in Africa.
It may be too early to begin the victory parade, but, still, to beat an extremely talented and highly successful Algerian team away from home by a two-goal margin in hostile conditions is something to behold.
"Good game guys, that's what I call a championship display. Sundowns at its best." – Oscar Sundowns
"Going for the star. Yellow Nation." – Papzoe Yellow
"Thanks for representing SA." – Master-Thobias
"The most successful team in the PSL. The most feared team in the Southern Hemisphere. Roar, Mamelodi Sundowns." – Big spender
Sundowns face another tough opponent in Enyimba at home on 29 June, and they will need all the help they can get. Now that Bafana Bafana are out of Afcon 2017 and barely beat Lesotho in the Cosafa Cup this weekend, the Brazilians remain our best hope for bragging rights on the continent.
Let's all throw our weight behind the yellow train!
What is your message to Sundowns? Do they have what it takes to go all the way in this tournament?
