Why Nto tse monate?

Nicknamed Nto tse monate, Tshabalala etched his name on the history books in 2010 when he became the first footballer to score a goal in the first-ever World Cup held on African soil - and what a spectacular strike it was!

The 37-year-old received the rare opportunity to unveil the glittering trophy on national television when he visited the SABC this week. 

Star-studded affair

The winger was not the only former national team star to attend the tour, as ex-teammates during the Mzansi edition of the tournament, Teko Modise and Reneilwe Letsholonyane were also among the VIPS.

Minister of Sports and Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa was one of the most-notable attendees. Kaizer Chiefs defender Ricardo Cardoso was also present alongside celebrities such as Minnie Dlamini and Lamiez Holworthy, among others.
