Mamelodi Sundowns have congratulated Rashid Sumaila on his selection to the Ghana national team for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Sumaila, who started his PSL career on a high with regular game time after joining Sundowns at the start of this past season, was relegated to the bench following the arrival of Thabo Nthethe at the Chloorkop outfit.
The Ghanaian proved his worth with fine performances whenever he was given a chance in Pitso Mosimane’s team in the 2013/14 campaign.
Sumaila made 17 league starts for Sundowns during the team’s championship-winning season.
“Mamelodi Sundowns have congratulated defender Rashid Sumaila who has been named in Ghana’s 23 man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil."
"The tough tackling 21 year old who joined The Brazilians in 2013 was instrumental in Sundowns’ successful 2013/14 season and quickly earned the respect of his peers and opponents alike for his no-nonsense defending and well-timed tackles."
"Sumaila will be Bafana Ba Style’s only representative at the world cup this after Uzoenyi Ejike narrowly missed out on Nigeria’s final squad."
"Ghana are pitted in group G against Germany, Portugal and the United States of America,” sundownsfc.co.za revealed.
Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda, is another Ghanaian player plying his trade in the PSL that has been included in Kwesi Appiah’s side for the world’s prestigious football tournament.
