MARITZBURG TRIO GET INTERNATIONAL CALLS
 
 
 


Siyanda Xulu and Siphesihle Ndlovu have made the cut for the Bafana Bafana squad, while Richard Ofori has been called up by Ghana.

   
 

This is ahead of the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, which sees South Africa hosting Libya in Durban on September 8.

 

Both teams currently have three points from one match, Bafana having beaten Nigeria 2-0 in Stuart Baxter’s first game in charge, while Libya defeated the Seychelles 5-1.

 

Home-grown midfielder Ndlovu and Team of Choice club captain and central defender Xulu have both become regulars in the national team set-up over the past few months, having featured in the COSAFA Cup.




Maritzburg goalkeeper Ofori meanwhile will be heading off to Kenya for Ghana’s second match of their Group F campaign, the Black Stars having beaten Ethiopia 5-0 in their first match.

 

“Maritzburg are once again extremely proud to see our players rewarded for their hard work and fine form with call ups to the South African and Ghana national teams,” said Team of Choice CEO Younus Kadodia.

 

“This serves as great motivation to everyone at our club. We wish Siyanda, Richard and Siphesihle all the best and hope to see them helping their national teams to victory in the upcoming AFCON qualifiers.”
