Scary action on the box Sunday

There have been a number of instances where football stadiums have been "nicknamed" by the home team's supporters to instil fear in the opposition.

How appropriate this would be after events of the past weekend following the humiliation of Kaizer Chiefs by defending Castle Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus.

The scoreboard reflected a decent 2-1 defeat, but the football lesson dished out by the Brazilians, in which 45 passes were exchanged with Chiefs chasing shadows against 10 men, will forever be etched in the minds of those who witnessed the spectacle.

Highlights of this game and other action from around the continent will be shown on the African Soccer Television show on SABC Sport's Laduma programme on Sunday at 3pm.

The 2008 Afcon hosts, Ghana's Black Stars, are in business and future opposition should have reason to feel afraid, very afraid.

The Ghanaians were merciless in their 4-1 massacre of Nigeria's Super Eagles in an international friendly played in Europe on Tuesday.

The junior Pharaohs also ensured Egypt entrench themselves as a football super-power on the continent when they won the Doha International Youth Tournament, beating Belarus 4-1 in the final in Qatar. South Africa took bronze in that event.
