Orlando Pirates humiliated Tough Guys 9-0 in a one-sided cup game last weekend.

Hold on. Before asking questions about not knowing that the mighty Buccaneers' were engaged in a cup game against an "unknown" club, this all happened in neighbouring Namibia.

They love the Sea Robbers so much in the southwest African country that they have their own version of the club and it didn't disappoint at the weekend.

They knocked the not-so-Tough Guys out of the MTC Namibian Football League Cup second round to join Windhoek Optics Ramblers, who beat the also not-so-Invincible United 5-3 on penalties after an extra time 1-all draw.

The African Soccer Television show will be bringing us the highlights of this and other games played around the continent on SABC Sport's Laduma programme on Sunday at 3pm.

Women's football on the continent has become so predictable that even "upsets" never take place. The All Africa Games qualifier between Ghana and Angola was one. The Black Queens lived up to their royal status and saw Angola off with a 2-0 pasting.

In Ghana's 2007 One Touch Premier League, Arsenals collected three points when they beat AshantiGold.
