Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs right-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele says he meant his stunning strike against SuperSport United though it was a 'moment of madness'.

Chiefs beat United last Sunday 1-0 in a Telkom Knockout quarter-final to advance to the final four of the tournament.

Mphahlele proved to be the hero as he struck home a magnificent effort from a tight angle that left goalkeeper Ronwen Williams absolutely no chance.

It was the attacking full-back's third goal of the season in all competitions after his two Premiership strikes against AmaZulu and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively.

Speaking to Chiefs' official website, he said: "I was definitely going for the goal. I tried the same shot a bit earlier in the game as well, but the ball was deflected via an opponent for a corner.

"I connected really well with the ball and I immediately felt confident that it would hit the back of the net.

"We knew that we needed to win. I took the shot on purpose, but it was also a bit of a moment of madness. It all worked out beautifully."

The Glamour Boys are next in action on Wednesday in a PSL clash set to take place at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
