Team of Choice skipper and central defender Xulu has gone from strength to strength since arriving in Pietermaritzburg last season and has been a regular in recent Bafana squads, also captaining the national team in the COSAFA Cup in June this year.
Bafana Bafana are set to play the Seychelles in back-to-back Group E qualifiers – in Johannesburg on October 13, and in the Seychelles five days later. They are currently second on the table with four points, behind Libya on goal difference, with Nigeria one point back.
Kenyan international defender Onyango and Ghana goalkeeper Ofori meanwhile are paired together in Group F of the AFCON qualifiers.
The two sides top the group with three points from two games, Ghana ahead on goal difference, although the star-studded Black Stars did lose 0-1 to Kenya in their previous match.
Ofori and his team-mates are set to take on Sierra Leone – at home on October 11, and away from home four days later.
Onyango’s Kenyan side play Ethiopia away on October 10 with the return game at home on October 14.
Maritzburg United would like to wish Siyanda, Brian and Richard all the best with their respective national teams in these crucial AFCON qualifiers.
