Goal-hero Sangweni aims for WC berth

Siyabonga Sangweni aims for World Cup berth

Posted: 25 May 2010 Time: 11:09 am

Bafana Bafana defender Siyabonga Sangweni tells KickOff.com that his goal during the international friendly against Bulgaria at Orlando Stadium last night will go down as one of his most memorable moments in his football career. 

Sangweni scored his first goal in Bafana colours after he connected with a well taken corner kick by Siphiwe Tshabalala in the 20th minute.   The Durban-born defender, said will do everything possible to be part of Carlos Albero Parreira's final team for the World Cup.   "I am more than excited. I am happy for myself, my country and my family back home in Kwazulu-Natal. I have enjoyed many good moments in football, but scoring goal for my country is certainly going down as one of the best moment in my career.   "I have always worked hard at training but this goal has given me a lot of encouragement to continue working even harder and hopefully I can get another one if I'm selected in the final team for the World Cup."   With Matthew Booth, Aaron Mokoena, Bongani Khumalo and Siyabonga Sangweni all vying for same central defence position, it remains to be seen who will be sacrificed on June 1 when Parreira names his final squad as both Khumalo and Sangweni gave out solid performances in the heart of the Bafana defence last night.

Mr. Editor, Siyabonga Sangweni was not born in Durban. He is from Empangeni in a rural area called EDondotha. I know him since 2001 in ENseleni Township.

I believe U Ngadla is no longer in sponsoring soccer now that he has built a house. Soccer was draining all the money from RBM/ Alusaf
