Mamelodi Sundowns kicks off the year 2021 with a mouth-watering clash in the DStv Premiership against Orlando Pirates. This game always has the masses pondering who will come out victorious. This clash makes the country stand still as it draws a huge following in the streets of the country.
Masandawana striker Kermit Erasmus speaks about this coming game as he is familiar with the Buccaneers, the Port Elizabeth born turned out for Pirates in the 2016 season. “Pirates are a very attacking and ball-playing team, they use their width properly. It will be a difficult game but if we stick to the plan we are working on anything can happen and we have been creating chances and we just need to convert them. It will be an entertaining game for the people to watch” stated Erasmus.
The Bafana international has formed a strong combination in the front three, with Peter Shalulile and Themba Zwane. The trio have scored more than ten goals between them in all competitions and “Romeo” has bagged two goals for himself and made three assists.
“We complement each other on the field of play and we always try to find space and look for one another and not be selfish in front of the goals. We know it is all about the team, it’s the team before the individual. If the team wins we are happy and we have shown no selfishness amongst each other and it has been good for the team and us,” stated Romeo.
The game takes place at 15:30 on Saturday January 2nd and will be broadcast live on SS202.
