Ex-Chiefs, Bucs Star Ndlanya Throws Weight Behind England

Ex-Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates Star Ndlanya: SA Must Get Behind England At World Cup!

By Ryan Gordon - Jul 09, 2018 06:30 PM
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?

Ndlanya can keep supporting whoever he wants, including England, but to mobilise support for them using such lousy reasoning as "because we watch the Premier League ... The Premier League is so good" or "They must also break the ice of the criticisms that 'Oh, England, they never do well because of this and that and so on" is just pathetic. I'd rather go fly a kite that support England, I owe them nothing. I wish Croatia goes all the way and if they don't, I will simply accept they didn't. as for dragging Bafana Bafana into the equation, it is equally beyond reason or comprehension.

Ndlanya is smoking the wrong stuff, England has been on holiday ever since the WC started & only had one real test thus far against Belgium of which they failed, the WC winner will emerge from the fixture between France vs Belgium & England, i mean look at their road to the semi finals? like really Panama, Sweden? even our useless Bafana was gonna Zebras who are the darling of the media but DOLOLO on the soccer pitch.

England have had it easy on their side and not forgetting luck.... The teams that they have faced thus far are not top notch teams except for Belgium that showed them flames.... I'm supporting Croatia against England.

yah ndlanya good idea brther....england a good hard working youmg squad that can outclass our bafana bafana by margin score...well organised tectical disciplined( no shibobo lapha) focused non-experienced squad...better than ours....they hav no pressure, they can still play other WCs, unlike modric who has last chance...well mangisi ths is far beyond our imagination...i think we should copy one or two...their u-20s & 17s just recently won trophies...WOW wish yu best England
