Mamelodi Sundowns star Themba Zwane has achieved an impressive road-mark in the DStv Premiership after he scored his 50th league goal during Friday's win over AmaZulu.
Zwane joined an exclusive club of footballers to have scored a half-century of goals in the South African top-flight when he netted the opening goal of the 2021/22 campaign from the penalty spot during Sundowns' 1-0 win over last season's runners-up.
The 32-year-old achieved the milestone in his 226th appearance in the competition across spells with Masandawana and Mpumalanga Black Aces, with whom he netted four times in 27 matches during a loan spell in the 2013/14 season.
In doing so, Zwane has become one of only nine active players to have achieved the 50-goal mark in the league, alongside Ndumiso Mabena, Kermit Erasmus, Gabadinho Mhango, Bongi Ntuli, Bernard Parker, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Khama Billiat and Bradley Grobler.
His tally includes double-figure hauls in each of the last two campaigns and is bolstered by an equally impressive return of at least 28 assists during his time in the big leagues.
