Cape Town - Cape Town City forward Bradley Ralani says he is pleased with his performance in the 2-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in Sunday's Nedbank Cup quarter-final.

Goals from Percy Tau and Hlompho Kekana handed the Citizens a 2-0 advantage before the impressive Ralani pulled a goal back for the Mother City-based outfit.

The Brazilians have since been drawn to face Maritzburg United in the semi-finals of the competition later this month. In the second semi-final, Kaizer Chiefs take on Free State Stars. 

Nonetheless, the winger was in some sparkling form on the day and at times had Downs' Thapelo Morena tied up in knots on the flank for the Benni McCarthy-coached side. 

Speaking to SuperSport after the encounter at Cape Town Stadium, he said: "It was nice to be on the field today Sundowns is a very good team so I had to show my quality against a team like this you know. It's good. 

"I hoped the one time or two I broke through we could have got one or two goals in the first half but we couldn't and they got us on a counter in the second half and scored the goal.

"We had a very good game but they took it all it's unfortunate for us. This is my best game for City so far I think."
