Unknown Players Abroad Who Could Be Considered For Bafana

Not many South African football lovers know about our local boys who are playing the game across the borders of Mzansi. We often forget that we have players featuring in some of Europe’s toughest leagues.

Today the Fan Park crew will take a look at some of the more lesser known South African’s abroad and those who could be considered for national team duty.

Devon Jacobs

Here is a player we are not too familiar with as he plays for Berwick Rangers in Scotland. The 23-year-old defender has made 26 starts and two sub appearances for his club and he seems to be a regular in the his coach's starting XI.

Keaghan Jacobs

Just like the aforementioned name, Keaghan Jacobs plies his trade in Scotland and has become a regular for Livingston after coming thorough the youth ranks of the club. The midfielder has made 30 starts for his club this season, scoring two goals along the way.

Kgosi Ntlhe

The 21-year-old Pretoria-born defender is being moulded by English club Peterborough United and recently faced fellow countryman Dean Furman in a 2-0 away win against Doncaster Rovers this weekend.  He made 19 starts for his club this season and scored one goal in the process.

Mason October

October was recommended to Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak by former Santos teammate and Ghana international John Pantsil, and he has since made waves at the African giants.  It’s a rare sight seeing a South African playing in a foreign African league, let alone becoming a fan favourite in such a league as well.

Do you think other players playing abroad, like the names mentioned above, deserve a Bafana Bafana call-up?
