Tembo hails Ghampani Lungu after SuperSport debut

SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has hailed the debut of new Zambian signing Ghampani Lungu, who played his first game against Orlando Pirates at the weekend in an unusual right-back position.

The-20-year-old attacker, who joined from Power Dynamos, was pressed into defensive service after Grant Kekana picked up a knock on the eve of the MTN8 quarter-final.

With Siyabonga Nhlapo and Jamie Webber already sidelined through injury, SuperSport were facing a crisis on the right side of defence and...

Benni McCarthy not overawed by Sundowns challenge

Cape Town City could have done without playing Mamelodi Sundowns this early in the new season, but coach Benni McCarthy insists his side will not be overawed after drawing the champions in the semi-finals of the MTN8.

City will have home advantage for the first of the two-legged tie on the weekend of August 24-26, before the return game in Pretoria a fortnight later.

City upset Sundowns in their league encounters last season, but McCarthy was quick to describe those results as irrelevant.

First objective missed for Pirates after MTN8 loss

Orlando Pirates' ambitions of a comprehensive sweep of the multiple trophies on offer to them this season were set back at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday after they lost again at the first hurdle in the MTN8.

Pirates' significant purchasing of players in the off-season -- nine in all --...

Sundowns, Chiefs through as Pirates crash out of MTN8

Mamelodi Sundowns got their MTN8 campaign off to a winning start as they beat Golden Arrows in the opening match of this year's competition and were later on Saturday joined in the semifinals by Kaizer Chiefs and holders SuperSport United.

It amounts to a heavyweight line-up for the final four in the first of the South African season's three knockout competitions.

The fourth side to advance to the two-legged semi-finals later this month will be determined on Sunday when Maritzburg United host Cape...

Top 8 race going down to the wire

South Africa's top-flight will wrap up on Saturday, with much still to be played for in the final round of matches.

Mamelodi Sundowns have already secured the title, but the race for spots in the lucrative MTN8 is well and truly on.

The MTN8 Cup is game-for-game the most lucrative cup competition on the African continent, where teams must play in just four matches for a first-prize of R8million (US$640 000).

With qualification handed to the top eight sides in the Premiership from the year before,...
