Shabba receives WC match ball
At the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Tshabalala produced arguably South Africa's most memorable World Cup moment with a thunder-strike against Mexico during the opening game.
Since that iconic goal over a decade ago, Shabba has been seen as a cult hero of the tournament, with legendary commentator Peter Drury hailing that goal as the best commentated on.

Yesterday, Shabba took to Instagram to share a couple of posts where he thanked Coca-Cola representatives for sending him the match ball from the Argentina Vs Netherlands Quarter-final.
In what was an enthralling clash between two giants of the game, the match ended in a 2-2 in normal time and eventual tournament winners Argentina outlasted the Dutch in a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory.
Shabba enjoyed much of the action in Qatar last year, and the ex-Kaizer Chiefs legend was afforded the opportunity to share the story of his World Cup experience as a player with the Coca-Cola global team.
Here's a glimpse:
The piece of memorabilia will undoubtedly be held in high esteem by Shabba, owning a football that was potentially kicked by the great Lionel Messi is definitely something to cherish.
