Shakes Mashaba will meet with his Bafana Bafana squad today ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Senegal, and there will be on new face in the team in the shape of Lars Veldwijk, who has never played in the PSL. Can you name of others who fit into this category?
The South African-born Dutchman, who currently plays for Belgian side KV Kortrijk, is the latest newbie to be implemented into the national team.
Veldwijk has no prior experience with the South African game, as he has never played in the country with the PSL, but he isn’t the only player who was also called up under similar circumstances.
In fact, former national team coach Gordon Igesund scouted several South Africans who were playing abroad, and none of them had prior experience in the Absa Premiership.
Can’t remember who they were/are? Browse the gallery above to view which players were called up to Bafana without having any PSL experience!
Are you happy with Shakes’ selection process?
