Cape Town - Italy U20 coach and AC Milan playing legend Alberigo Evani believes that Kaizer Chiefs and Amajita starlet Wiseman Meyiwa is destined for big things in Europe.

The South Africa U20 side were beaten 2-0 by the Italians in their group and bowed out of the U20 World Cup after picking up just a single point against Uruguay, however, Evani was impressed by Meyiwa.

The former midfielder, who won numerous honours with i Rossoneri from 1980 until 1993, told reporters: "South Africa's number six (Meyiwa) might play at some stage in Europe.

"He was our great worry and it was our tactic to block him from getting the ball and, instead, the defenders had to bring up the ball and they were not so skilful."

Meanwhile, the 17-year-old says he learnt a lot about playing in the global showpiece. He told Chiefs' official website: "You learn the most when playing against the best and at a World Cup one plays against the best."
