Ten-man Tambuti FC claimed their first Eswatini Bank Cup after beating first edition champions Manzini Sundowns 2-1 at the Somhlolo National Stadium on the 5th May 2019. Tambuti’s Mthokosizi Nsibane got a red card 8 minutes in to the game after he intentionally blocked the ball from going into the net using his hand after a shot from Sundown’s Zwakele Mngometulu. Manzini Sundowns was then awarded a penalty which Langelihle Dlamini converted from the spot to put his team on the lead.
On the 19-minute Tambuti’s Ndumiso Matsebula finished off a loose ball following a defence lapse and levelled the score line.
On the 75 minutes of the second half, after a couple of failed attempts, Lindelwa Mngometulu became the hero of the day after he scored Tambuti’s winning goal.
Tambuti will take home E45.000 plus a trophy whilst Manzini Sundowns receive E20 000.00 plus silver medals.
