Phiri Makes His Way Onto Brondby’s Wall Of Fame

Young South African midfielder, Lebogang Phiri, has had his name etched into Brondb IF’s history after he made it onto the club’s coveted ‘Wall of Honour’.
 
Phiri, 20, has been a standout performer for the Danish giants this season, putting in a number of fine performances for the club over the course of their campaign so far.
 
Now, following his recent Bafana Bafana debut against Swaziland, Phiri has taken his place alongside the likes of Michael and Brian Laudrup, Peter Schmeichel, Daniel Agger, Chris Katongo and many more on the prestigious wall.
 
Players are given the privilege of making their way onto the wall if they represent their national team while playing for the club, and Phiri has become the 82nd player to don his country’s colours since 1982.
 
The Siya crew spoke to the player about his latest achievement, with Phiri saying, “Well I’m honour to have gotten the chance to be put up on the wall amongst players that have played at the highest level in terms of international football.
 
“I’ll continue working as hard, if not harder, than I was before, because this is only the beginning of good things to come. One cannot be satisfied. Once again I give all the praise to the man above, as all of this is happening through his will.”
 
Phiri is only the seventh African to make it onto Brondby’s Wall of Honour, and the first to do so since Gambia’s Ousman Jallow back in 2008. 
 
Now, with seven league games left to play and both UEFA Champions League and Europa League spots up for grabs, Phiri will be hoping to finish the season on a high and put his name in the hat for Shakes Mashaba’s future Bafana squads.
