The champagne’s on ice – Hamata

Windhoek ∙ [email protected]com




Local football pundit Isack Hamata said Brave Warriors and Mamelodi Sundowns forward Peter Shalulile has what it takes to win an award on Sunday at the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Awards set to take place in South Africa.

Shalulile has been nominated in three categories: The PSL footballer of the season, DStv player's player of the season and the Nedbank Cup player of the tournament.

These nominations don’t come easy as the Namibian worked extremely hard to keep in shape and form to compete at the highest level.

“All I can say is that he has done enough to earn a podium finish. Nomination for me is already a victory, but if he wins player of the season, which I pray he does, then that will be a victory for Namibia.

“It will be a demonstration of what we can deliver as a country if given the opportunity and if we get our ducks in a row. All the best to him. Our fingers are crossed and the champagne is on ice already,” Hamata said.

Consistency

Another pundit and former footballer Ronnie Kanalelo said Shalulile’s performance has been consistent, “with a good goal scoring ratio per match overall, a team player with a good goal assist. So, I'm sure he has done enough to scoop all the awards”.

As it stands, Shalulile is the second top scorer of the league, with 13 goals. SuperSport United’s Bradley Grobler leads the golden boot list with 16 goals, while Maritzburg United’s Thabiso Kutumela is in third with 12 points.

The top-flight 2020/21 domestic season concludes on Saturday to accommodate teams who have CAF commitments. Shalulile’s Sundowns have already won the league unbeaten, with their remarkable 2020/21 campaign concluding on Saturday against Cape Town City.
