Sundowns Beats Egypt Club in Front of Jubilant Home Crowd. One Step Closer to Africa Crown

Congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns for beating Egyptian powerhouse Zamalek in an action-packed match at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa, today. They’re one step closer to being crowned African club champions!

The home team thrashed Zamalek in the CAF Champions League final first leg with a score of 3-0. It was a champion’s performance, delivering awesome atmosphere, goosebumps and an undisputed victory over one of Africa’s top football clubs.

The crowd went crazy… with Sundowns giving them plenty to sing about (watch video below).

Two days ago South African Football Association (SAFA) President, Dr Danny Jordaan, reminded Sundowns that they stand on the brink of greatness if they overcome the Egyptians; a triumph that would open many other great opportunities in the world of football…


And they pulled it off Saturday in front of a jubilant crowd!

The SAFA President said Sundowns was on the threshold of unimagined history and achievement for South African football because, not only would they become the best side on the African continent, but would automatically qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup which will be played from 8-18 December 2016 in Tokyo, Japan.

If Mamelodi Sundowns win the hotly contested championship, they would be the first South African team to win the League title since Orlando Pirates did it in 1995.

Jordaan said: “The draw for the FIFA Club World Cup has already been conducted and if Sundowns win the two legs against Zamalek, they will meet New Zealand’s Auckland City and next Champions of Japan in the FIFA Club World Cup.”

The second leg will take place in Alexandria in Egypt on 21 October 2016.
