Shabba: We Are A Team

Bafana Bafana midfielder Siphiwe ‘Shabba’ Tshabalala did not feature in South Africa’s last two Africa Cup of Nations fixtures, in defeating Angola 2-0 and playing to a two-all draw with Morocco.

South Africa has since qualified for the knockout stages, where they will face Mali in the quarterfinals, and Tshabalala has emphasised the importance of the team. The Kaizer Chiefs man said that it is not important who plays, but rather about the side winning.

 

He said that the players have been supportive to each other, regardless of who plays on match day. He told the Siya crew that each and every player wearing the national jersey wants the best for the country.

 

“We are looking for wins and whoever plays knows that we are behind them. It doesn't really matter whether you play or not, as long as who plays, plays to win. We are a team and as a team we support each other. 

 

“We know Mali are a good side with great players but we are also a good team and we want to keep on going until the final,” Shabba concluded.
