Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs celebrated their 50th birthday by putting ice on the cake with an emphatic 3-0 win over Highlands Park at FNB Stadium in front of a huge crowd.

Star defender Eric Mathoho opened the scoring for Amakhosi with a superbly executed overhead kick.

The Soweto giants secured the victory courtesy of a brace in the second half from Leonardo Castro, a poacher’s finish in the 57th minute and a well-timed header in the 69th.

Chiefs are now comfortable at the top of the Absa Premiership log with a six-point lead over current champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

Celebrations continued after the match with a lap of honour and a huge cake was shared among players, club legends and some fans got a taste as well.
