Watch: CAF’s birthday tribute to Peter Ndlovu

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have sent their tribute to Peter Ndlovu who is celebrating his 48th birthday today.

Ndlovu, who is the Warriors’ all-time leading scorer, captained the national team at their first ever African Cup of Nations tournament in 2004.

In celebrating the birthday, CAF posted a compilation video of some of the Zimbabwean’s most memorable moments including goals scored at the 2004 edition.

The former Coventry City, Birmingham City and Sheffield United forward netted the Warriors’ first ever goal in the tournament in 2-1 defeat to Egypt. He scored a brace against Cameroon as they lost the match 5-3.

He finished the campaign with three goals, one behind the Golden Boot winning quartet of Frédéric Kanouté (Mali), Patrick Mboma (Cameroon), Jay-Jay Okocha (Nigeria) and Francileudo Santos (Tunisia).

Ndlovu retired from international football in 2005 as he took his club career to South Africa before hanging his boots.

The 48-year old is now the team manager of Mamelodi Sundowns.
