What they said:
Woman of The Match [Mamelodi Sundowns Goalkeeper] – Andile Dlamini
“I’m grateful to God for creating this opportunity, and to CAF for doing this for women’s football”.
“We have a big technical team to keep us calm no matter what happens. I have to be the calmest to guide my team”.
“I dedicate this to my mother, who has done so much for me. I’ve been through a lot and was not able to breathe, drink or eat. Now I’m Woman of The Match and going to the final game. I’m so grateful”.
Jerry Tshabalala – Mamelodi Sundowns Coach
“It wasn’t an easy game for us. It was tough but I’m still in loss for the reason why whenever we play good football, we don’t score and vice versa”
“I must applaud my defenders; we are here because of them. To keep this many clean sheets is because of them”.
“My team has shown that whenever we face a good side, we perform even better. So, I’m very excited for the final game. We are ready to take the title to South Africa”.
