AmaZulu repeated their high-scoring Nedbank Cup form beating Vasco da Gama 5-0 at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban on Saturday night to qualify for the quarterfinals.
After a dull first half, with little goal-mouth action apart from Dumisani Ngwenya’s goal in the 21st minute, AmaZulu came out with all guns blazing in the second half and recalled memories of the 14-0 thrashing they gave the Young One’s in the previous round.
The Cape team made too many elementary errors and barely created a single chance for themselves.
Litha Ngxabi scored the second goal after a defensive clearance went straight to the midfielder in the penalty box and his instant shot made it 2-0 in the 55th minute.
Ngxabi was again involved when AmaZulu put the outcome beyond doubt in the 70th minute. He supplied a pass to substitute Sthembiso Dlamini, who scored after being on the pitch for 19 minutes.
Dlamini scored again in the 74th minute, after picking up a loose ball from another intercepted Vasco clearance.
Veteran John “Shoes” Moshoeu created the fifth goal in the 87th minute, when he received the ball on the halfway line, dribbled past three players and sent a pass to Ngwenya, who converted brilliantly.
