Big Week For SA’s EPL Youngsters

There was good news coming out of England for a couple of South African teenagers this week, with one getting a first team call-up and the other continuing to captain his side.
 
 
Teenage Leicester City winger, Khanya Leshabela, got the chance to become part of Claude Puel’s matchday squad for Leicester City’s penalty shootout win over Southampton in the Carabao Cup, and while he didn’t get on the field, the promotion bodes well for the 19-year-old going forward. 
 
Leshabela’s name may be a new one to South African football fans, and that is largely due to the fact that the attacking midfielder left South Africa when he was just two years old, growing up in England before being snapped up by the Foxes’ academy.
 
Meanwhile, in other news, another South African youngster, Nikola Tavares, continues to captain Crystal Palace’s U23 side despite being just 19-years-old, though his future with Mzansi is up in the air after he received a call-up to Croatia’s U20s recently. 
 
Tavares is able to play for South Africa or Croatia due to the heritage of his parents, however, he hasn’t been called up by any of the youth sides in Mzansi yet, while the Croatians have made sure that he knows that he’s wanted there. 
 
The Siya crew will continue to monitor the progress of both players as they look to build even further on their recent good news.
