The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil is underway. Siphiwe Tshabalala scored the first goal of the previous edition when the tournament was hosted by South Africa in 2010.
Some people forget that Shabba was groomed by Free State Stars. Here is the club’s summary on how the left-footed player started his professional career before he became the player he is today:
“The Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana international player began his impressive top flight football career at Stars, who had signed him from Alexandra United. He made 67 appearances in three years he was at the Free State team before moving to Kaizer Chiefs in 2007.
"He is a regular player for Bafana Bafana and has featured at three Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, the Confederation Cup and the 2010 FIFA World Cup where he scored the first goal of the tournament. The goal was nominated for the goal of the tournament,” the club revealed.
