Wafa Wafa continues tonight as the highly anticipated second leg of the MTN8 semi-final between Chippa United and Mamelodi Sundowns takes off. Only one team can survive. Two buses of Chippa supporters have driven up from Port Elizabeth to catch the encounter – will they get their money's worth?
Supporters Club caught up with Chippa fan Pam Buwa to discuss tonight's match.
Beaver Nazo: Hi Pam, how are you?
Pam Buwa: Hey Beaver, all is well, I just landed in Pretoria for the game tonight against Sundowns
BN: It's round two of the Wafa Wafa semi-final. Your thoughts?
PB: This is going to be a humdinger, Beaver, and I urge the people of Pretoria to come and witness the beautiful game. There will be goals. Both teams wants this so badly.
BN: Sundowns have promised to go for it with guns blazing; can the Chilli Boys weather the storm?
PB: Well, we are ready for anything that Sundowns will throw at us. We're not going to undermine them and say they can't beat us, but we will win tonight.
BN: Last time we spoke, you assured me that the Chilli Boys will be in the final of this cup, are you still certain about that?
PB: I'm still certain about that, Beaver, we will play in the final, we are just waiting for the venue to be announced.
BN: Pam, you must be very proud of your team. In their maiden season in the competition, they are in the semis and they are level with Sundowns.
PB: We are, Beaver. The whole of the Eastern Cape is really proud of the Chilli Boys, the people have been calling me asking for the team jersey. We have a lot of people all over the country who are now Chilli Boys supporters after watching the beautiful football the boys dish out.
BN: Pam, the score at the moment is 0-0, meaning that any draw with goals favours the Chilli Boys. Do you guys want your team to go for the early goal?
PB: The Chilli Boys want to score two goals in the first half.
BN: Lastly, any message for the boys before they take on Sundowns?
PB: They must not be nervous, they must just go out there and play their normal game, their beautiful football. They must know that we are here to support them, we are their 12th man. Two buses are here, from Port Elizabeth.
BN: Pam, thanks for talking to us, and good luck for tonight.
PB: Thanks a lot Beaver.
Can you sense Chippa growing as a team?
