Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has showered Orlando Pirates with praise after they qualified for the final of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Mosimane was impressed with the manner of their 5-3 aggregate win over two legs against Al-Ahly in the semi-final, as well as the calibre of opposition they were able to overcome.

"Orlando Pirates are really, really flying the flag high," he told KickOff.

"They beat Al Ahly - the team with 18 CAF titles and the team of the century. Really guys, credit to Orlando Pirates. Eric Tinkler has got it right and congratulations to him; all we are doing is to envy them.

"We wish them well and they are still showing that they are the biggest team in South Africa in terms of continental football.

"They fear nothing. They are fearless away and they are scoring the goals when they play away you know."
