Premiership: Wonder goal from Supersport’s Diouf floors Sundowns

ATTERIDGEVILLE — Mor Diouf’s 88th minute strike from within his own half secured all three points for SuperSport United against Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in their PSL clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium yesterday.

SuperSport started off the game brightly through a Sameehg Doutie free-kick in the second minute.

The midfielder’s ball into the box managed to beat everyone and went inches wide of the goal.

Sundowns’ first chance of the match also came via a set-piece in the seventh minute of the match.

Tebogo Langerman’s ball found captain Alje Schut in the box, the defender’s effort on the volley went just wide of Ronwen Williams’ goal.

In the 33rd minute Downs again threatened the SuperSport goal.

After great play by Anthony Laffor, Mushekwi found himself in space, but was denied by a rushing Williams. The Brazilians finally managed to beat Williams in the 43rd minute through Manqele, but the striker was denied off the line by Innocent Mdledle.

Sundowns picked up where they left off and went close through Henyekane in the 49th minute. The midfielder beat a few defenders but was unable to control his effort and blasted his shot wide.

Matsatsantsa went close to opening the account through captain Kermit Erasmus in the 71st minute. The striker bamboozled the Brazilian defence with skill and sharp turning but he smacked his resulting shot wide of Sandi­lands’s right-hand post.

Diouf secured the win for Matsatsantsa in the 88th minute when the defender picked up the ball well inside his half and blasted an unbelievable shot over Wayne Sandilands’s head. — Sport24.
