Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly used Cristiano Ronaldo's goal-scoring record at Real Madrid as an example of how he wants to contribute more goals.

Dolly scored his first goal for the Brazilians in their 2-0 win over Jomo Cosmos last weekend and added to that tally against Chippa United as 'Downs crushed the Eastern Cape Side 2-0 to advance into the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knockout.

The midfielder was delighted to break his duck at the club and hopes it was just the first of many.

He is of the belief that wingers in general in South Africa should be contributing between 10 and 15 goals each per season to be able to consider themselves effective.

"Ronaldo is a winger and he's scoring 50 or more goals in a season and I think if we work hard enough and copy good things from overseas we can reach a good level," as quoted by KickOff.

Dolly followed up on his first goal for the club with another in Downs 2-0 win over Chippa United in the Telkom Knockout at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

He will fancy his chances of adding to his growing tally when the side hosts struggling Polokwane City in the Absa Premiership in two week's time.
