Two days after Kaizer Chiefs secured a Telkom Knockout final berth football fans are still talking about the penalty misses by Siyabonga Sangweni of Orlando Pirates and Siphelele Mthembu of Kaizer Chiefs.

Mthembu stepped up to take a penalty after Pirates man Thandani Ntshumayelo’s spot kick went wide at goal to the delight of Chiefs goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo and Amakhosi fans.

He would have scored what was to be the winning penalty, but he missed it.

Sangweni came close to converting his penalty, but it hit the crossbar, handing Chiefs a first class ticket to the Telkom Knockout final.

Football fans showed their humorous nature on the subject via social media.
