Motaung: Let's vote for Shabba

2010-11-22 10:00

Johannesburg - Kaizer Motaung has heaped praise on Siphiwe Tshabalala, whose World Cup thunderbolt has been nominated for the FIFA 2010 Goal of the Year prize.

The Bafana Bafana midfielder opened the first global showpiece on African soil with a left-footed cracker that will be engraved in the memories of South Africans for decades to come.

'Shabba' was made aware of his inclusion in the top ten list for the Puskás Award last week and Chiefs founder and chairman Motaung is calling on the country to get behind the left winger.

'Whilst I give credit to the whole national team, I would like to congratulate Siphiwe Tshabalala whose goal in the FIFA 2010 World Cup has won him a goal of the year nomination,' he wrote in his column on the Amakhosi website.

'I am certain that we shall all rally behind his achievements with votes considering that he made history as the first South African to score the first goal in the first match that opened an event that was hosted for the first time on African soil.

'Surely he deserves our unwavering support throughout the voting and crowning process!' agrees with Motaung and urges everyone who experienced a wave of emotion when Tshabalala stunned Mexico goalkeeper Oscar Perez with his left-footed beauty and got 90 000 spectators in Soccer City on their feet - to vote for Shabba.

    How can we vote for this single footed player's goal knowing it very well that we've so far seen so many better goals. No man, I'd rather vote for Forlan's strike against Holland.
