After the referee blew his whistle for the end of the match, Bucs’ players cried in the change room.
Meyiwa explains why: “Eish my outi – we cried because we saw how much we threw away this year.
“We felt as if we had let ourselves down by not winning the CAF Champions League. Coming to this Cup, we knew what we had to do to win it, something we failed to do in Egypt, the MTN8 and Telkom Knock Out Cup.
“It (the tears) all started with Lucky, he started crying and he said it was because we failed to win other Cups, i think we actually had a team to fight harder and win those Cups
“We looked back at our season and began thinking that we could have actually achieved a milestone in the continent in terms of achievements; it was an emotional moment for all of us.”
Meyiwa also explained how they won the Nedbank Cup: “Before going to Durban, everything just felt right; we had this type of attitude that is indescribable. Even if (BIDVEST) Wits could have taken a bigger lead, we were mentally prepared to answer them.
“Sometimes in football what counts is your state of mind and how prepared you are to go to war.
“That is why we cried.”
