John Perlman chats to Jerry Sikhosana who scored the winning goal when Orlando Pirates beat ASEC Mimosas in 1995.

In 1995 on 16 December, Orlando Pirates became the first South African team to win an African championship.

The Buccanears won the second leg of the 1995 African Champions Cup (ACC) Final against ASEC Mimosas with a score of 1-0.

The winning goal was scored by Jerry Sikhosana who joins John Perlman to talk about that beautiful day.

Yes, I scored that important goal, but I always reflect to our goalkeeper Willy Okpara as they had so many scoring opportunities and he kept us in the game.

Also, most of the giants that played on that game were selected to play for Bafana Bafana who went on to win the African Cup of Nations in 1996.
