It was a night to remember for Orlando Pirates in the CAF Confederation Cup after they successfully saw off Tanzanian giants Simba SC at the Orlando Stadium.
The Buccaneers went into tonight’s second leg quarterfinal clash with a 0-1 deficit following last weekend’s loss in Dar es Salam.
It took a second half Kwame Peprah header following a delightful Innocent Maela cross to bring the aggregate scoreline back on level terms for Orlando Pirates.
The Buccaneers then sealed their spot in the last four thanks to a 4-3 penalty shootout victory with Richard Ofori sealing the victory with the final spot kick before bursting into a hilarious celebration dance!

You should be ashamed of yourselves! – Ncikazi
“I’m not happy about what happened today, firstly as Africans we should change the mentality that whenever another team visits your country.” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said after the first leg.
They have to receive every bit of hostility and treat them like animals. This is a game of sport that should unite us and build relationships.
“But we have received the opposite while we are here and everyone here should be ashamed of themselves. The rules stipulate that VAR was to be used in this match, but it was not used once.
“Simba received a penalty that wasn’t supposed to be while a few moments before that Orlando Pirates were denied a legitimate penalty because all of a sudden the VAR is switched off.
“But listen to this, we’re going to treat Simba with decency when they come. We’re going to show them what it is to be a true African by giving them the best hospitality and treating them like human beings.
“You don’t treat visitors the way we get treated here. You should all be ashamed. Orlando Pirates did not deserve to lose; the officials caused us to lose.”
