The match between Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City will be fondly remembered for the wonder goal scored by Hlompo Kekana.
Kekana has become known for his long range goals, but this particular strike was extra special.
Kekana dribbled past a defender and unleashed an unstoppable rocket from an incredible distance.
The ball was hit with such force that the goalkeeper stood motionless as it cannoned in off the post.
Football followers also noted the stunned reaction of his teammate, Tiyani Mabunda, as he celebrated on the sidelines.
Mabunda took to Instagram and Twitter and made the most of the popular images of him being shared.
Via his Instagram account he posted a photo and included the following caption: “I have seen this man @gonzalez_888 score many goals from long range, but this one aowa, there was just too much power. I saw the camera also being too slow for it. No Goalkeeper could have saved that. I thank God I'm not the only one that couldn't believe what I had just witnessed. All I could do was try and use my hands to keep my head together.”
