Youngster makes his mark in renowned tour

Prince Boshego.

White River Primary soccer player, Prince Boshego became an inspiration to all young dreamers when he was selected to participate in the IberCup tour to Estoril in Portugal recently.

This grade seven learner fearlessly took on the responsibility of captain in a match against Michigan Soccer Academy from the US.

They played against excellent teams, such as EF Nueva Rocene from Spain and Benfica EF Estadio.

The Johannesburg SA team won the group stages.

They eventually finished in third position and won bronze medals.

“This tournament gives young talented players from different countries the opportunity to come together to learn about the history of football, learn football and improve their skills while competing for the IberCup,” said his coach, Ricardo Nuno Sousa.

Prince started playing soccer on the streets with other kids from his school. Every morning before going to school, when he is not writing tests or exams, he watches the international football highlights.

“It was one Sunday morning in January this year that my boy woke up and said to me he wants to move to a soccer school in Johannesburg.

“That is when I realised how serious he is about his sport. I made a few phone calls to find him the best academy close to home,” said his mother, Pulane.

Prince joined Sporting CP Nelspruit Academy in February.

“I am happy to see my boy take his career seriously at such a young age. As parents, let us support our children’s dreams,” said his father, Joseph. His coach was soon impressed by the talent and dedication that the young champion possesses.

He was selected to play in the Sporting CP Pretoria League. Games take place once a month.

“I am grateful to God for every hand that supported me in making my Portugal tour possible,” said Prince.
