Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns' MultiChoice Diski team secured the inaugural MDC International Challenge trophy after defeating Japanese side Ichifuna FC 1-0 in the final in Holland.

The Brazilians' reserve team booked their passage in the final after beating Dutch outfit Excelsior Rotterdam 2-0 to reach the final. Coach David Notoane sung the praises of his charges and revealed that they drew inspiration from their CAF Champions League winning senior team.

"I’m really proud of the boys for this historic achievement, and happy to be part of the history making generation at Mamelodi Sundowns," he told the club's website.

"I must say that we have been learning all the good habits from the senior team, and how they go about their business. 

"I guess you can say the winning has rubbed off and filtered down to us, we are truly inspired

"Furthermore, I would like to thank coach Pitso (Mosimane) and his technical team, the management staff, board and president for all the support."
