Mamelodi Sundowns crowned Champions of the CAF Women’s Champions League

Mamelodi Sundowns beat Hasaacas Ladies 2-0 to win the title of the first edition of TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League, and adds to the men’s team achievement of wining CAF Men’s Champions League in 2016.

Morifi opened the scoring with an assist from Mgcoyi at the 33rd minute to put Sundowns in the lead.

Then Mgcoyi herself added another goal in the 65th minute to end it 2-0 for her team. Sundowns were reduced to 10 when Regina Mogolola received a red card at the 92nd minute with VAR review, just 2 minutes after being subbed into the game.

The Brazilians held on for a very famous win becoming the first ever TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League Winners.

Jerry Tshabalala, Mamelodi Sundowns Coach heaped praise on his team.

“I was afraid we were not clinical enough, but today we were marvelous. I’m very happy of my girls”.

“I spoke to Mgcoyi and told her that she needs to bring it to the party, and that’s what she did. I’m proud of her and the whole team”.

“I saw how Hasaacas Ladies played before. I needed to press them with three strikers. Lucky enough, they are not taller than us. We had confidence playing our football, and we frustrated Hassacas Ladies even though they played good football”.

“We came to this tournament and saw the level of competition, I assure you next time, it will be even tougher”.

“We are the first team the WCL and we did it without conceding a goal”.
