Akpeyi Keeps Kaizer Chiefs’ Cup Hopes Alive

Akpeyi made several saves during the game and in the penalty shootout to help the team to the last four of the competition.


Kermit Erasmus put Cape Town City ahead in the 34th minute and had several chances to extend hosts lead, but Akpeyi stood firm with three fine saves in the second half.


Chief’s Samir Nurkovic then equalised late on to take the game into extra time, but both side failed to find the winner in extra time as the game went to penalty.


While Kaizer Chiefs converted four of their five kicks , Akpeyi saved rose to the occasion by saving one to help his team progress to the quarter final of the competition.
