Phiri Handed Major Honour In France

It was a big night for South African midfielder, Lebogang Phiri, on Friday as he was given a major responsibility for his team in France.

The 25-year-old Bafana Bafana international announced himself to the South African public earlier in the month when he scored a great goal for Molefi Ntseki's side to give them a 1-0 win over Sudan in their 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifier, something that came as a reward for his club form.

Phiri has been a regular performer for EA Guingamp in France over the last couple of seasons, and so far in 2019/20 just one player at the club has played more Ligue 2 minutes than he has over the course of the campaign.

EAG are still harbouring hopes of securing promotion back into Ligue 1 after last season's relegation, and Phiri will be eager to play his part in trying to do so.

Head coach, Sylvain Didot, showed his faith in Phiri even further for their game with Caen on Friday by handing him the captain's armband, however they narrowly missed out on victory after a late equaliser from the opposition meant that it finished 1-1.
