Cape Town - Chippa United striker David Zulu says he
draws inspiration from Moroka Swallows veteran Siyabonga Nomvethe about his
late introduction to international football.
Mubaiwa's baffled by delay
The Chilli Boys marksman has made an incredible leap from
being leading the goal-scoring charts in the second tier last season and
getting his first call-up to the national team at the age of 28.
Zulu, who has been called up to the latest Bafana Bafana
squad that will play against Congo in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers,
says he is happy to buy his time before making his national team debut.
"Siyabonga might not have been in the Bafana Bafana
team, but he still has energy to take on defenders," Zulu said.
"I worked hard to be in the national team and I'm
working hard at training and I know my time will come to play.
"I'm not giving myself a time frame as this will put me
under pressure. I want to prove my worth as a striker.”
"I’m here to help my country to succeed and I will only
achieve this through scoring goals. I don't doubt my potential and I add
another dimension in our strike force," he added.
Chippa face Polokwane City on Saturday, October 4 at the Royal
Bafokeng Stadium in the Telkom Knockout.
Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
