This is the first time the Limpopo-born striker's mother has travelled on a plane.

"She is in town [Durban] with my uncle," Moseamedi tells KickOff.com.

"They have always been coming to watch our games when we play in Limpopo. I just decided that it will be nice if I made her year special by getting her and my uncle for the first time on a flight for the final here in Durban.

"She will be at the stadium tomorrow."
