Highlands ace thrilled with Golden Boot

Highlands Park striker Peter Shalulile is in good spirits after finishing the season as joint-top scorer in the National First Division, alongside Black Leopards' Mwape Musonda.
Both men scored 15 goals - five less than when Sedwyn George won the NFD Golden Boot with Royal Eagles last term.
"It's an amazing feeling, amazing feeling," Shalulile, 25, tells KickOff.com.
"I said the first time that if it was meant to be, I will get this Golden Boot award."
In the past few years, several NFD top scorers have failed to live up to expectations once they got into the PSL, as has been the case with George at Ajax Cape Town this campaign.
Shalulile is well aware he faces a daunting challenge to buck the trend with Highlands in 2018/19.
"I think it's because of lack of consistency," says the Namibian.
"They go to the PSL and maybe relax because they think they have now arrived. So as for me, as a player, I'm not yet where I want to be. Once I get to the PSL I will have to work harder than I did in the First Division."
Shalulile confirmed to this website that he extended his contract with the NFD champions in 2017 by a further three years.
"It's true, last year. I just want to say in everything if you put God first, life becomes good. Everything become great," he concluded.
