This is why Sundowns signed Teboho Mokoena

The goal came in a 4-2 victory for Sundowns, who played much of the game with 10 men after Brian Onyango was sent off early.

Mokoena is a free-kick specialist, but he appeared to be a little too far out to find the back of the net.

The midfielder, on the other hand, displayed excellent technique by leaving the goalkeeper rooted to the spot as the ball soared into the net.

Teboho Mokoena scores stunning goal

Masandawana progress into the quarterfinals of Africa’s premier club tournament with a game to spare as group winners after the result.

The result helps Sundowns’ great rivals Al Ahly, who now need just a point from their final round clash with Al Hilal to make the quarterfinals.

Prior to the sending off of Onyango, Peter Shalulile had given Sundowns the lead with some sharp work.

A fightback soon squashed

Al-Hilal managed to pull one back. Yasil Mozamil came off the bench to beat Reyaad Pieterse with a low shot that made it 2-1 11 minutes into the second half as the hosts fought back.

The Sudanese side’s defence looked weak any time they pushed forward and they would be punished by Thapelo Morena.

Morena made the most of a lightning-quick transition from Sundowns and fired beyond the keeper.

Moments later Morena was in again, this time set away by excellent build-up play by Neo Maema.

A late penalty would prove inconsequential in the final shake-up as Sundowns earned a comfortable win.

Sundowns have almost two weeks to prepare for their final Caf Champions League group stage match, at home to Al Merrikh.
