Onyango’s Heroics Send Sundowns to finals, Bukenya Out of Soweto Derby

Uganda Cranes stars Dennis Onyango and Ivan Bukenya were both in action down in South Africa as their teams Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs set a date in the final of the 2015 Telkom Knockout tournament after cruising through Supersport United and Orlando Pirates respectively.

Dennis Onyango had a fine field day helping Mamelodi Sundowns to edge his former club Supersport united in a enthralling 3-1 victory played at the Lucas Moripe stadium. Sundowns goals came from Leonardo Castro, hospital   Thabo Nthethe and Bongani Zungu.

Bukenya’s Plight.
The defender had earlier been summoned to the Uganda Cranes squad for Togo duty but his fate will await medical assessment after he pulled out of the Soweto derby at half time due to injury.

“Bukenya has a fairly good performance in defence but is forced off at half-time due to injury. Inside ten minutes his long ball pass finds Lebese but the midfielder’s shot is saved by Siyabonga Mpontshane.

But he blots his copy-book by wasting two very good chances to score from Tshabalala’s free-kicks, website like this each time escaping his marker, only to miss badly,” a South African media, Kick-off described his game before the injury giving him a 60% efficiency rating.
