Defending PSL champ Mamelodi Sundowns smashed Kaizer Chiefs 4-0 at Loftus Versfeld in what was a body blow for the Amakhosi and Arthur Zwane. Uruguayan Gaston Sirino opened the scoring for the Masandawana in the sixth minute following an error from defender Siyabonga Ngezana in the Chiefs box.
There was more salt to the wounds, Ngezana was culpable again for ‘Downs second goal, bringing down Peter Shalulile in the 16th minute for an unnecessary penalty, the Namibian marksmen doubled the lead from the spot.
Lasy year’s golden boot winner Shalulile got his second goal of the afternoon after firing past the helpless Bvuma in the 53rd minute. And the highly-rated Abubeker Nessir introduced himself to South African football rather frighteningly with a sensational goal in the 76th minute to complete the embarrassing rout.
