Ex-Chiefs, Bucs Star Ndlanya Throws Weight Behind England

Former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya has urged South Africa's Premier League fans to get behind England and back them to go all the way at this year's World Cup.
 
 
The Three Lions have endured a long wait for global glory, with their 1966 title triumph proving their one and only World Cup crown, but they now find themselves into their first semi-final in 28 years, where they'll face Croatia in the last four on Wednesday.
 
And Ndlanya, who is one of millions of South Africans who watch the English top-flight week in and week out, believes those supporters owe something to the Three Lions as they go in search of title glory, with all of England's 23-man World Cup squad plying their trade in the Premier League. 
 
 
"I'm so excited for England," he told the Siya crew. "The English supporters, it's good for them.
 
"We (South Africans) watch the Premier League, that's why I'm saying I want them (England) to do well, because the Premier League is so good, we always watch them.
 
"They (The Three Lions) must also break the ice of the criticisms that 'Oh, England, they never do well because of this and that and so on'.
 
"I think they are doing well; their character, their attitude, their fighting spirit, it is so amazing."
 
Who are you backing to go all the way at this year's World Cup finals in Russia?
