Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi saved two penalties for Kaizer Chiefs to reach the semifinals of the Telkom Knockout at the expense of arch-rivals Orlando Pirates.
The cup tie was tied at 2-2 after extra-time, before Kaizer Chiefs shaded the penalty shootout 4-2 on penalties with their Nigeria shot stopper emerging the hero of the day.
The penalty heroics should now help Akpeyi to finally warm his way into the hearts of the Chiefs fans.
The former Warri Wolves goalkeeper has also earned a recall to the Eagles for 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho later this month.
This was after he was blamed by coach Gernot Rohr for a winner by Algeria in the semifinal of the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
