Cape Town - Sport24 readers reveal their most memorable moments of former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa.

The 'keeper was killed when two armed men entered a house where Meyiwa was present and shot the 30-year-old.

Meyiwa's girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo was also in the house but was not harmed.

The suspects immediately fled the scene with another suspect waiting in the car.

A year later and the murderers have still not been captured.

To celebrate the life of the goalkeeper, Sport24 asked Pirates and football fans alike to share their most memorable moments of Meyiwa in action and thousands of messages swarmed through our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Here are some of the moments fans can recall:
