Cape Town City goalkeeper, Peter Leeuwenburgh is fully behind Hlompho Kekana in his nomination for the FIFA Puskas award.
Kekana’s stellar striker against Cape Town City in August last year, saw the 35-year-old’s name being written alongside the likes of Luis Suarez and Heung-min Son in contention for the prestigious Puskas award.

Leeuwenburg, who was the goalkeeper between the sticks on the day, revealed that the only criticism he has for himself after conceding the goal, is that he didn’t clap for Kekana on the spot.
“Hlompho I just want to congratulate you with your nomination for the Puskas Award, again… I really hope that you will win it this time as the first African player to win it, you know that goal was really amazing. We analyse everything we do on the pitch but after this goal, the only criticism that I have for myself is that okay, I should have actually clapped for the goal because it was unbelievable. All the best, good luck and we will vote for you,” the 26-year-old said on City’s official Twitter account.
