Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane applauded his players for their tenacity after overcoming the plucky Chicken Inn in the CAF Champions League.

The Brazilians beat the Zimbabweans 2-0 in the second-leg at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday to secure a 2-1 aggregate victory and advance to the qualifying first round.

After the 1-0 loss in the first-leg, Sundowns responded with a return win after goals from Wayne Arendse and Katlego Mashego. 

"What a tough game! There was a lot of anxiety in the side...but character. What's good about it is, this is the character for Champions League," Mosimane told SuperSport.

"But credit to this team Chicken Inn. This team is a very good team. These are not fishermen from an island, this is serious football and they gave us a hard time.

"But my team showed character. When we play like this we are destined for success. We want to win the Champions League, we will fight for it.

"Now we have to face AC Leopards, it's going to be the same, on the edge. We need to do better away and we need a different strategy away.

"But credit to the boys, they just keep winning, it's unbelievable."
