Everton v Oldham - Pienaar v Furman

This weekend will see Everton, including former Bafana Bafana captain Steven Pienaar, take on South Africa’s new golden boy and possible future skipper, Dean Furman and his Oldham Athletic, in the fifth round of the English FA Cup.

Pienaar has been in fine form this season for the Toffees, scoring some vital goals for them as they climbed up to sixth place on the English Premier League log.

 

Meanwhile Furman has missed chunks of Oldham’s league campaign due to international duty with Gordon Igesund’s Bafana side and was unlucky to miss their recent giant killing of English giants, Liverpool.

 

However, the Latics’ captain is now back and available for the League One side, and he will be hoping that he can help them topple yet another Premier League club.

 

Furman told the Siya crew of his excitement at facing another South African on the big stage. 

 

He said, “I’m excited to play against Steven, I was devastated not to get the chance to be in a squad with him and I’m excited at the prospect of meeting him, but also to play against him. He’s been brilliant this season. I’m sure people in South Africa will tune into the game, obviously they like to watch Steven play, but hopefully with me involved it adds a little more to it.”

 

The Oldham midfielder, who has been touted as a possible candidate for the national team captaincy in the future, explained that the atmospere around his club at the minute is ‘buzzing’.

 

He said, “We’re buzzing here, when you’ve got a big team to play it’s really exciting, the world’s media is here. The stadium will be a sell out and it should be a great game, Everton are a great side. We did it against Liverpool, so why not?”
