Kaizer Chiefs reserve sensational young talent Mfundo Vilakazi continued his brilliant form in his first season with young Amakhosi in the DStv Diski Challenge (DDC) by scoring an incredible free-kick against Sekhukhune United last weekend.

Vilakazi scored the second goal of the match after Aden McCarthy put the Chiefs ahead in the first half, before Vilakazi added the second goal just before half-time, scoring from outside the box to help the team win 2-1 last time weekend .

The victory gave Amakhosi juniors the certainty of finishing the season in the top eight, with the team in sixth place with 45 points in the final round of the Diski Challenge matches.

Manager Vela Khumalo says the team’s goal is to finish the campaign in the top half of the log and says that despite being without the services of two key players Bontle Molefe and Mduduzi Shabalala, who are on trial overseas, they still managed to do well.

“Our goal is to stay in the top 8 and not lose our position. The boys scored brilliant goals and we are proud of that. We are the youngest team in the DDC when you look at our average age. We are a team with an offensive mentality, which is why we are the second highest scoring team when you look at the statistics. There are no offensive challenges and we are a fun team when you watch our games – we just have to work on our defense and make sure we stick to our playing philosophy, ”Khumalo quoted on the club’s website.

“We have changed the team a bit, but not our approach. Another thing is that we have lost two players who have gone for overseas practice in the past few weeks (referring to Bontle Molefe and Mduduzi Shabalala), but we have continued to do well. We were also able to add three players to the senior team. “
