South Africans Who Have Played In Portugal

Liam Jordan has become the eighth South African to head across to Portugal to ply his trade in the European country, but can you name the other stars who went before him?

The teenager was officially unveiled as Sporting Lisbon's new signing on Monday evening, seeing him pen a loan deal which will tie him to the club for a year. 

Jordan's transfer makes him the second South African in the space of a month to move to Portugal, with Bongani Zungu having made the move to Vitoria de Guimaraes.

He is the second South African to have joined the club, after Haashim Domingo was transferred to Vitoria's B team at a tender young age. 

Benni McCarthy is, undoubtedly, the biggest South African name to have played in the Mediterranean country, having famously won the 2004 UEFA Champions League title with FC Porto.
