Alton Meiring says he was not impressed by Bongani Zungu’s performance, as Mamelodi Sundowns outclassed AmaZulu by beating them 3-0 in the first semi-final of the Carling Black Label Cup.
A pre-season-like first half performance from both teams, that lit up considerably in the second half, as Masandawana completely dismantled an average looking Usuthu team. The team from Durban couldn’t cope with the control and the possession based game played by Downs.
“AmaZulu did not play well, even though Sundowns were playing in the second gear for most of the second half,” Alton Meiring told ThisIsfootball.Africa.
Goals scored by Cassius Mailulain in the first half, Hashim Domingo scored a second, and a classy finish by Surprise Ralani to finish off Amazulu. What stood out was the counter press of KaboYellow as they tactically out thought AmaZulu.
“The first half was kind of boring to be honest, but when Sundowns stepped it up and they immediately tore through that AmaZulu defence,” continued Meiring.
“I was not very impressed by Bongani Zungu, but using his type of game for match fitness is good for him.”
Mamelodi Sundowns now await the next finalists between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, as they seek their maiden Carling Black Label Cup trophy.
