Cranes goalkeeper and captain Denis Masinde Onyango has helped Mamelodi Sundowns win the Nedbank Cup.
The goalkeeper returned in goal as the Sundowns defeated Bloemfontein Celtics 1-0 in the Nedbank Cup final at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.
Gaston Sirino’s 80th-minute goal was enough to secure the Brazilians their Fifth Nedbank Cup and a treble of trophies in the 2019-20 Season.
Bloemfontein Celtics had a chance to level matters in the 87th minute but Onyango’s heroics in goal didn’t allow Andile Fikizolo to find the back of the net.
Celtic: Chaine, Letlabika, Mahashe, Chabalala (Masuku 90’), Ngobeni, Baloyi (Sera 90+2’), Phalane, Fikizolo, Mabena (Potsane 61’), Luthuli (Maema 61’), Letsoalo
