Goalkeeper in action

Platinum Stars, Goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela, was the hero for his side as they qualified for the next phase of the CAF Confederation Cup courtesy a 3-2 aggregate win over Vipers SC.

The South African side had lost 1-0 in the first leg and needed a two-goal margin to go through but while the build up for the match was centered on the strikers and midfielders to get the goals – it was Mzimela that stepped up with two goals.
