Greetings to my fellow reader. In football and life in general all you need to do is use the opportunities that are presented to you, believe me if you do that results will be positive. What Mamelodi Sundowns did is remarkable and serves as lesson to many people and football clubs out there.
They were given a life line and what they did was not to shy away from the responsibility, but instead grabbed it with both hands. Their hunger and belief is the reason why many South Africans are glowing on a Monday.
Some may argue that they got lucky because they were eliminated in the group stages but because of a team that got disqualified in the same group Sundowns were given another chance.
However that is not the point, the point is that they used their opportunity. In football you need luck sometimes and in this scenario luck was on their side.
Not only did they end the 21 year hoodoo but also Pitso Mosimane became the first South African born coach to win the Champions League.
South African fans have all the reasons to celebrate. They will hope this is only the beginning of other great things to come in South African Football.
