Veldwijk can be a great asset for Bafana Bafana
Stuart Baxter may have pulled a masterstroke after finally recalling Lars Veldwijk back into the Bafana Bafana squad. The 1.96 m (6 ft 5 in) tall Veldwijk is by far the tallest player in the Bafana Bafana squad and his height will be a great asset to the squad. Veldwijk is an aerial threat at both ends of the pitch and he can also be a target man - like the 6 ft 4 in Olivier Giroud, who was a crucial component in France's 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph. And Veldwijk is in great form, having scored 17 goals in 28 league appearances for Dutch club Sparta Rotterdam this season. He can also share his experience of playing in Europe with Bafana Bafana's local players, which can only improve Bafana Bafana. Veldwijk offers a different dimension to Stuart Baxter's team and he can be a great asset for Bafana Bafana.
