16V, Dladla & Co – Shongwe Picks Star-Studded Dream Team

Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Abel Shongwe, played with some of the top players during his time in Mzansi’s topflight, having joined the Soweto giants as an 18-year-old in 1986 and coming from Swaziland.

Shongwe – whose brother is none other than former Chiefs and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper William Shongwe – was one of the notable and top attacking players of his time in Mzansi, who tormented defenders with his pace and skill.

In reminiscing about the good old days, Shongwe has selected a strong team of former Chiefs, Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns players whom he believes that would have beaten any team in the world on their day if they were put together and played competitive matches. 

His brother William was an obvious choice in goals, with the likes of Doctor ‘16V’ Khumalo, Nelson

‘Teenage’ Dladla, Sam ‘Ewie’ Kambule and Gavin ‘Stability’ Lane making the star-studded team. 

Shongwe’s dream team in full: William 'Cool Cat' Shongwe - GK, Samuel 'Ewiee' Kambule - RB, Jack 'Africa' Chamangwana - CB, Gavin 'Stability' Lane - CB, David  ‘Going Up’ Nyathi - LB, Nelson 'Teenage' Dladla - RW, Nick 'Bazooka' Seshweni - CM, Patrick Pule 'Ace' Ntsoelengoe - AM, Doctor '16V' Khumalo - AM, Abel 'Chacklas' Shongwe - LW and Absalom 'Scara' Thindwa - ST.
