Amakhosi lift Telkom Charity Cup

[Posted 07 Aug 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Chiefs fans were ecstatic at winning the Telkom Charity Cup in 2010 after waiting for 7years

Kaizer Chiefs beat Orlando Pirates in the penalty shoot-out show at the Soccer City Stadium to lift the Telkom Charity Cup before a capacity crowd of more than 90 000 fans. The match had ended 1-1.

Both clubs fielded almost completely new teams in the final from the teams which had battled through the semi-finals, showing off their depth in the Premier Soccer League.

Only a few players such as Andile Jali for Pirates, and SiphiweTshabalala and Sthembiso Ngcobo appeared twice in the Telkom Cup today.

Amakhosi have now won their 11th Telkom Charity Cup title, and have made a record 25th appearance in the Cup. Yet their win today was their first in seven years, with their last victory having come in 2003.

The Buccaneers were the defending champions of the Cup which they won in succession between 2008 and 2009.

The match started at a frenetic pace, and play swung from end to end as both teams exchanged blow after blows. 

Pirates though began to dictate pace after about five minutes. Yet it was Chiefs who made the first real threat on Pirates' goal area with young Lucky Khune, who was released by Siphiwe Tshabalala.

The young brother Chiefs and Bafana Bafana first choice keeper Itumeleng Khune, made a wrong option by laying it for a team mate. Pirates cleared easily.

Khune however came back to make amends in the 13th minute when he showed composure in the box to fire home emphatically past Moneeb Josephs. He was beautifully set up by Ngcobo.

The Buccaneers immediately hit back in search of an equaliser, and on the 18th minute veteran defender Lucky Lekgwathi charged into the box,only to be pulled back by Zhainu 'Jimmy' Jambo. Jimmy was lucky to only receive a yellow card for handling Lucky in the box.

Today certainly belonged to the Luckyies. The Pirates captain continued to lead by example when he rose unmaked in the box to nod Chansa's free-kick delivery, placing it beyond Arthur Bartman's reach in the 65th minute.

Lekgwathi might have been lucky not to have been ruled off-side. That was Pirates' equaliser.

Both teams showed some urgency towards the end of the match. Pirates had an upper hand and exerted pressure on Chiefs. Pirates made excellent build-ups in the 70th minute which ended with Mabena bursting into the box.

When the youngster lost the ball under a challenge, he simulated a foul and was booked for all his troubles. Great decision by referee Daniel Bennet.

It was 1-1 by the 95th minute, and penalties were the necessary evil to determine the winner between the Amakhosi and the Buccaneers.

Chiefs scored through Torrealba, Mmbooi, Sitayitayi and Tshabalala,while Ncana missed the second spot-kick for Chiefs.

For Pirates, Mahamutsa, Schalkwyk and Lekgwathi scored. Chansa and Phenyo Mongala missed to hand Chiefs their 11th title.
