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:

@Sport24news great shot and penalty stopper, who would forget what Hlompo Kekana did to him with that thunder bolt, said @lefaskuman on Twitter.

He continued saying, @Sport24news when he replaced moneeb josephs in the CBL CUP and won it for us in the penalties with stupendous penalty saves.

When he told @TPMazembe captain Tresor Mputu "You won't score me" as he was about to take a penalty #CAFCL2013 @Sport24news, said @OPFC_Supporters.
