Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has revealed he was reminded of Kennedy Mweene's heroics against Kaizer Chiefs before the penalty shoot-out in the MTN8 final

After neither side could find the winner in extra-time, Onyango was the hero for the Brazilians in the shoot-out after saving five spot-kicks and was named Man of the Match.

"Ya it was insane but we kept on believing, the guys didn't drop their heads, we knew that they were dragging the game to penalties and they knew that they can score but we had it in our minds that it was our game," Onyango told SuperSport TV.

"Of course they started playing aggressively and keeping the ball, we couldn't cope with them but with the mentality from the boys, we kept on going. We knew that we'll drive them as long as we can.

"We missed a lot of chances to be honest, they got one chance and they took it but of course good resilience from the boys," he said.

"We knew most of them where they'll kick [penalties], of course some of them had gone off, so I had use my instincts, of course I had to reward Kennedy, he started this journey of penalties.

"Coach Rhulani reminded me that Kennedy [Mweene] did very well in the first game against Chiefs, so I had to reward him and this what I had to give the club and the goalkeeping department.

"All the goalkeepers played a huge role in this tournament, I think that's why we managed to win it and everyone was free spirited, they were willing to take this trophy home," he added.
