“Yes I’m celebrating a milestone of 50 goals. I’m very honoured,” expressed Tshabalala.
“50 goals for this great team after spending another milestone of 10 years is a marvellous achievement for me. I wrote it (on his bandage) before the game and I was so determined to get one .
“And thanks to my teammates; both past and present as well as everyone for the support and contribution to this achievement. I wouldn’t have made it without them.
“So now the journey continues,” said Tshabalala.
