Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen is pleased that South African football fans have been afforded the chance to see 'what a talent' Nduduzo Sibiya is.

Sibiya, who made his way through the Abafana Bes'Thende reserve side, scored a wonderful individual goal to help Arrows beat Mamelodi Sundowns in a Nedbank Cup last 16 match over the weekend.

"He is one of the kids that has come through the MultiChoice Diski Challenge. He's been amazing in our last five games," Larsen enthused.

"The country can start to see what a talent he is. Very happy for him, he's taken his game very seriously.

"He's become more professional in his approach to the game and I can't be more delighted for him."

The 21-year-old player, meanwhile, says he's determined not to let accolades go to his head.

"I just need to remain down to earth and focused because I see this goal has sent tongues wagging. But what I need to show is commitment at training," Sibiya told KickOff website.

"I have to also listen to the coach's instructions and play as a team and not individually."

The youngster explained what went through his mind while taking his superb goal on Saturday.

"But I just saw the opportunity and I felt Sundowns at the time were tired. And I used my skills and mind by ensuring I'm removing the person (Motjeka Madisha) in front of me.

"As you saw it was like I was touching the ball but I was not touching the ball and I knew I'll meet it ahead," he pointed out.
