Youngster Targets World Cup After Olympics Snub

TS Galaxy youngster Ethan Brooks has set his sights on the FIFA World Cup after missing out on the Tokyo Olympics.

The 19-year-old midfielder had a very good debut season in the DStv Premiership and there were expectations for him to be part of the under-23 in the Tokyo Olympics but unfortunately he missed out.

Despite that disappointment, he received a senior national team call-up which saw him being part of Bafana Bafana side that won the COSAFA Cup and now want to use that experience in the domestic league. 

"It was really an exciting season for me, playing 14 games, so i would say it was a good debut season for me. This coming campaign, I want to cement my place in the starting line-up and score more goals to help the team," Brook told the Siya crew.

"Yeah, it was a tough one to miss out on the Olympics, but I was part of the COSAFA Cup and be a champion with Bafana Bafana. I would've loved to be (at) the Tokyo Olympics but Qatar is around the corner and I'm hoping to be there. 

"It was a great experience to be in that Bafana Bafana setup and I want to use it in my team as I want to do well next season and also plan to go overseas."
