Peter Ndlovu: For Zimbabwean, scoring Africa’s Premier League goal is still “special”

1 Min Read

The former Zimbabwean international scored for Coventry City in a 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on September 2, 1992, when he was still a teenager, being the first African to do so in the newly renamed English top flight.

When the winger replaced John Williams in Coventry’s Premier League away triumph at Tottenham Hotspur on August 19, 1992, he had already reached the milestone of 100 international appearances. He had joined Coventry from Highlanders a year earlier.

Ndlovu is honored to be recognized as the first African to compete in the division and believes his continent has made a significant contribution to the league’s popularity and attractiveness on a global scale.
