A local champion, Prince Boshego in grade 7 at White River Primary School has become an inspiration to young dreamers. He was selected to participate in the IberCup 2017 June tour to Estoril in Portugal. Boshego fearlessly took on the responsibility of being captain in a match against Michigan Soccer Academy USA at the tournament.
They played against excellent teams such as EF Nueva Rocene from Spain and Benfica EF Estadio. The Johannesburg SA team won the group stages where they took the third position with bronze medals in IberCup 2017 International Youth Tournament. “This tournament gives young talented players from different countries the opportunity to come together to learn about the history of football, to learn and improve their skills while competing for the IberCup,” said his coach Ricardo.
Boshego started playing soccer on the streets with other kids from his school. He played for other local teams while looking for a team he can grow in. His coaches always said he has talent and shows dedication and that he can go far with his soccer career.
“It was one Sunday morning in January 2017 my boy woke up and said to me he wants to move to a soccer school in Johannesburg. That’s when I realized how serious he is about his sport. I made phone calls to find him the best academy close to home,” said his mother, Pulane. Boshego joined Sporting C.P Nelspruit Academy in February 2017. “I am happy to see my boy take his career and life serious at such a young age and as parents let us support our children’s dreams,” said his father, Joseph. “I am grateful to God for every hand that supported me in making my Portugal tour possible,” said Boshego.
