Swaziland showers Dikwena with love

It was lit as Platinum Stars proved to be a hit in Swaziland on Monday.

Dikwena players, technical team and management were on the receiving end of love when they visited St Mary’s High School in Lobamba. The pupils shouted and screamed in adulation when Dikwena arrived at their school earlier this morning. Dikwena, led by Cavin Johnson, gave motivation, T-Shirts and opportunity for pupils to mingle with the players and travelling staff.

“It’s important that we reach out to communities whenever we travel around the continent especially in Southern Africa. We did it in Mozambique when we played the preliminary rounds of the CAF Confederation Cup. You never know one day one of these kids could become an athlete and say that it started the day Platinum Stars visited our school. So we are happy and appreciate the love we get,” Johnson tells Platinumstars.com.

Dikwena players were hogged for pictures, autographs and hugs from elated pupils. The players gleefully posed for pictures. The likes of Vuyo Mere, Ndumiso Mabena, Stephen Hoffman, Robert Ng’ambi, Gift Links, Abia and Thuto Mphahlele had to be whisked away from the audience who sought their attention. However it’s highly unlikely that Dikwena will receive the same love when they clash with Mbabane Swallows at the National Stadium in Group B of the CAF Confederation Cup on Tuesday afternoon. Johnson says Dikwena have done their home work on the opponents who are log leaders in the premier league of Swaziland.

“We have done some home work on them. They play more or less a 4 4 2 system. They are very cagey. They allow you to have it and try hit you on the break. This is a worldwide thing that is happening right now. Everybody is trying to counterattack you so we have to be careful of that. They play football and we hope that they are able to give us a good game of football,” said Johnson.

Kickoff is at 3pm.
