Ghanaian duo of Solomon Asante and Daniel Nii Adjei failed to win the 2017 CAF Super Cup following TP Mazembe’s 1-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday in South Africa.
TP Mazembe set a date with the 2016 African champions after winning the 2016 edition of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Brazilians broke the deadlock through Nacimento’s spot kick.
Asante, who remain a key pillar for the sinking Lubumbashi based side , enjoyed a spectacular outing for his Congolese side but was powerless in preventing Sundown from becoming only the second team from South Africa to win the CAF super cup.
Sundown equalled the feat set by Orlando Pirates in 1996 with the 1-0 win over TP Mazembe. The south Africans are the current Cup holders in the Champions league while TP Mazembe are the current custodians of the CAF confederation cup.
