“It’s good for us to have the three points to get the confidence the players need for future matches. We could’ve changed the result today if we’d converted our chances into goals, but this is what we’ll work on”, Agnes Nkosi Mamelodi Sundowns Coach said.

Vihiga Queens haed coach Charles Okere  remarked:

“I congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns on the win, and I congratulate my players on fighting till the end. We’ve trained to play defensively but we did not defend well. To be able to attack, we have to defend and prevent goals, so when we do that we can win”.
