Usuthu thump hapless FC Cape Town

AmaZulu recorded an emphatic 5-0 win over FC Cape Town in an National First Division (NFD) clash at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Five minutes into the game a good one-two between Petrus Shitembi and Siyabonga Nomvethe almost led to the opening goal as the latter’s right footed shot went wide of the target.

However, the 37-year-old Nomvethe did find the opening goal in the 12th minute when he turned home a pass from Ziad Patel to make it 1-0 to AmaZulu.

The home side continued to dominate the encounter and they doubled their lead in the 27th minute. Once again Patel set up Novemthe and the veteran striker scored with a right footed finish, 2-0.

Novemthe completed his hat-trick when he fired home with his right foot once again following another assist from giant striker Patel 12 minutes before half-time, 3-0.

Things went from bad to worse for the Cape Town side in the 70th minute after they conceded a penalty. Marc Van Heerden stepped up and made it 4-0 to Usuthu.

Long serving AmaZulu forward Ayanda Dlamini sealed his side’s 5-0 victory on the day with a well executed volley with 15 minutes left on the clock.
