SSC, whose parent club is FC Dallas in the Major Soccer League, decided to take a chance on the 17-year-old winger, and it appears that they were right to do so as he continues to strut his stuff in the Elite Club National League and Premier Cup.

Kudakwashe Kasunzuma, of LeZ Sports Management, said in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, “Basically we’re trying to nurture and guide these boys off the field, while adding a strong support system for them as we try to open doors for them that they never thought, or felt, would be opened to them.

“Our hopes for ‘Diesel’ specifically are that we want him to attract interest from France and the UK because there have already been some scouts in Europe that have made in enquiries about him.”

Mugala, who is originally from Zambia, is currently in the process of getting South African citizenship and should be eligible to play for Bafana Bafana in the future.

Why will he be eligible to play for South Africa if he is Zambian national, unless he was born by South Africans then it makes sense
