Chiefs Star’s World Cup Surprise

Siphiwe Tshabalala Thinks There Could Be A Shock At The World Cup

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 15, 2018 05:15 PM
Siphiwe Tshabalala foresees an upset at the FIFA World Cup, with the Kaizer Chiefs man believing that an African nation can push on in the tournament in Russia.
 
 
‘Shabba’ scored the opening goal of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa as he blasted Bafana Bafana into the lead v Mexico eight years ago, and despite his nation not being there in 2018, the Amakhosi star is backing his continent.
 
With both Egypt and Morocco in action today against Uruguay and Iran respectively, Africa will be eagerly watching to see if the two nations can get off to a good start, with plenty of eyes on Liverpool hero, Mohammed Salah. Senegal, Tunisia and Nigeria will get their competition underway in the coming days.
 
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website ahead of the clashes, Tshabalala said, “I will back all the African countries representing our continent. I will support all five. I will watch the games and get inspired.
 
“On paper, not many football analysts think that an African country will go far at this World Cup. I feel, however, that there is a big surprise in the air. At least one African country will reach the semis and, hopefully, even go all the way.”  
 
Egypt lost to Uruguay earlier today and Morocco is currently playing Iran. 
 
Do you think an African team can win the World Cup?
