He has been at the forefront of Amajita's high tempo passing game, playing an integral role in the team securing a place in the semi-finals. His ability to take on and beat several opponents, his speed, and his eye for the killer pass has lit up the Athlone and Cape Town stadiums. Ngidi has not only been South Africa's best player, but has been one of the stand-out performers in the tournament as a whole, which includes South American giants Brazil and Argentina, as well as African heavyweights Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ngidi usually finds himself the smallest man on the park, but he's one of the most difficult players to take the ball off – thanks to his strength, determination, and excellent ball control. "His size, especially considering the position he plays does not matter. He's quicker than everyone else and his skill overcomes his lack of height," explains Amajita coach Solly Luvhengo. "He may be the shortest on the park, but you can see how he puts himself about, how he challenges for the ball. If he does lose possession, he picks himself up quickly and soon wins it back. I have no doubt Ngidi can go on to play in the PSL."

The 18-year-old has been with the Pretoria side for six years already, and although is yet to crack the first team squad, he is hopeful to soon get his chance in the PSL, where all indications are he will be a big hit. "I was told to do my pre-season, from July this year, with the first team squad, so I'm looking forward to that challenge and to seeing if I can play at the highest level. It's exciting to get the chance to play with some of the best senior players in this country," he said. "I've been with SuperSport since I was 12, so that has helped me to develop well, tactically and in all aspects of my game." Dedication to his profession and the desire to make the most of his opportunities are the driving force behind Ngidi's success. "I was expecting to do well at this tournament because it comes with hard work – with the right attitude nothing can defeat you. I live for my parents, for me to see them happy makes me proud, to pay them back for what they have given to me, a life, makes me happy."
