This first time that you may have heard the word "Laduma" (pronounced laa-doo-mah) may have been after South African left-wing, Siphiwe Tshabalala, scored the first goal in the 2010 World Cup.

Translated from Zulu the word means "it thunders" and is usually used as a long, loud, and drawn out exclamation of excitement and happiness when a player scores a goal - laaaaaaaaa-doooooooo-maaaaaaaaah! :)
