Kermit Erasmus

SuperSport United's Kermit is a legend long before his time. Even those who have never seen him play know his is a name to keep in mind when talking about the new generation of great players. With the stocky build of the legendary Diego Maradona, Brazilian superstar and Romario, Kermit has played for all of South Africa's international sides (under-17, under-20 and under-23). He has been called up to the senior national team, but is still to win his first cap. Next season Kermit will join Dutch side Feyenoord. This is significant because the Dutch are among the best in the world when it comes to identifying and developing talent. They also don't have the media glare that makes it difficult for youngsters coming from outside of Europe to adapt to that continent's culture of hard knocks. It is expected that Kermit will be part of the 2010 team. Then again, at 18 years old, he should be part of at least three more World Cup campaigns.
