To the average Jomo Cosmos fan, Nkanyiso Madonsela is a class act who needs little or no introduction. Gifted with blistering pace and a keen eye for goal, Madonsela joined Cosmos three years ago. This season he has notched up a couple of goals in six league starts and 10 substitute appearances, highlighted by his stunning league strike against Mbombela United in February, and last Tuesday night, he showed more sparks of individual brilliance when he scored the decisive penalty kick that steered Ezenkosi to the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup.
His lucky number is 26, and his biggest dream is to see Cosmos bouncing back to the Absa Premier League…
