Chiefs Target Mekoa Celebrating His Birthday In Rio

Three points against Iraq in the final group game of the 2016 Olympics will be a perfect birthday present for Amaglug-glug star Deolin Mekoa. But did you know his success was predicted eight years ago?

The Wentworth-born player turns 23 today, and is currently in camp with the South African U23 side in Brazil.

"Didis", as the player is fondly known, has been an integral part of Owen Da Gama's team, and versatility is one of his greatest attributes, as the School of Excellence graduate can either be deployed in central midfield, left wing or in the left back position.

The community of Wentworth has taken to social media to show their support for their Golden Boy, and his Facebook account has been inundated with messages of support. 

Some fans have even posted newspaper articles from as far back as 2008, and a Sunday Tribune piece that tipped the youngster for future stardom stands out above the rest.

Mekoa is held in high esteem by his former Maritzburg United coach Steve Komphela, and Kaizer Chiefs are believed to be after his signature.

Here is a cutout of the Sunday Tribune piece that was posted on Mekoa's Facebook wall. 

Judging by his performances in Rio so far, do you think Mekoa is Kaizer Chiefs material?
