Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler proved a master at making predictions after scoring the decisive goal in a 1-0 win to knock out Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8.

Grobler proved to be the Kaizer Chiefs destroyer-in-chief as he netted all three goals in a Matsatsantsa 3-2 aggregate win over Amakhosi in the two legged MTN8 semi-finals.

Last week Grobler said, when asked, on the Live with Robert Marawa show that he was confident he would score again against Chiefs.

"Two goals, I scored two in the first-leg and I'm feeling I'm confident that I'll score again.

The 30-year-old proved correct when he reacted quicker than the Chiefs defence in the box to clinically slot home the only goal of the game to book his side's place in the MTN8 final.

He has been named in Stuart Baxter's squad to face Libya at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

"I did not expect the call-up and just had a chat with the coach about it. It's been a difficult road for me. I was in the national team; I got injured and went for a groin operation," Grobler said.

"I worked hard to get back, I was back in the national team; I was winning things with SuperSport and had to go for an operation in my ankle. I started to doubt myself and got to a point where I said, two operations in two years.

"Am I going to feel the same, I'm not old, but I'm not too young. Am I going to feel the same, am I going to be the same Bradley I felt when I was at my best?

"But that first leg match against Chiefs, it gave me the confidence again and the belief that I'm back to my best again."
