Mahlangu was one of the top talents in Mzansi with Kaizer Chiefs at the time, who had been terrorising defenders with his silky skills and speed in the league.

As a result, Mahlangu was one of seven local-based players in Sono’s 23-man Bafana Bafana squad for the global showpiece, along with his then Chiefs teammate Cyril Nzama, Thabo Mngomeni (Orlando Pirates), MacBeth Sibaya and Thabang Molefe (Jomo Cosmos), Andre Arendse (Santos) and Calvin Marlin (Ajax Cape Town).
