Young Brazilians Win Gothia Cup In China19/Aug/2016 16:50
Sundowns beat English side Kinetic Academy for the second time in the tournament when they put two past them to win the final of the tournament 2 – 0.
The Young Brazilians were unbeaten in the tournament, only dropping points in a 2 – 2 draw against BK Hacken, the most goals they conceded in a game.
They went into the final favourites as they had beaten Kinetic in the round robin, and did not disappoint as they took the game to the English side.
Sundowns qualified for participation in the tournament by winning the South African version of the Future Champions tournament and represented the country with aplomb.
On Friday, it took 25 minutes to take the lead when Thabo Moloisane netted to give his side a 1 – 0 lead.
The English side tried hard to break through for the equaliser, but Godfrey Sapula’s side had smelt glory and were not about to give up.
In the 86th minute, Tlotlego Pitso provided the insurance goal to deflate Kinetic’s ambitions, and the victorious boys threw up their arms in joy when the final whistle went with the score at 2 – 0 as they embraced the technical team led by Sapula and his assistant Isaac Shai.
