Malawi national football team (the Flames) striker Robin Ngalande finally made his competitive debut for South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Bidvest Wits on Friday in a Telkom Knockout Cup against Kaizer Chiefs.
Wits won the match 3-2.
Ngalande was thrown in as a second-half substitute for Papy Faty in the 88th minute.
Speaking from Johannesburg, Ngalande said he was excited to get a run.
â€œI was very excited although I played for just a few minutes. It was enough to lift my spirits.
â€œNow, I will work extra hard to earn a position in the team,â€ said Ngalande.
However, the 20-year-old stated that he was not bitter to be reduced to the bench saying Wits have a number of good players.
â€œI will take every game at a time,â€ he said.
Ngalande was signed by Wits after ending his romance with Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madridâ€™s youth side.
