Kabo Yellow also handed midfielder Tebogo Mokoena with debut during the 4-0 drubbing of the Kwazulu Natal outfit. Both Mokoena and Ralani joined the Brazilians during the past transfer window period.

"A very sound performance from Surprise but not a surprising performance because we know what he is capable of and we know he is still going to help us further," Manqoba Mngqithi said.

"He understands our tactical plan he understands our playing concept. Cape Town City is playing something close to what we would want to see.

"Tebza came on in the second half to refresh the team and he did well to stabilise the midfield.

"Good passing moments where he created a lot of interesting moments, even in the final third.

"We are happy with their contributions to the team, and we believe there is more still to come," Mngqithi added.

Sundowns meanwhile are also awaiting the imminent arrival of fellow signing, Erwin Saavedra to arrive in the country.
