Rusike Gets Zimbabwe Call-Up

Kaizer Chiefs forward Matthew Rusike has been called up to the Zimbabwean national team for an international friendly against Botswana next month.

However, the 22-year-old now faces a tough decision as it is believed that he is unsure whether he would rather play for Zimbabwe or South Africa.

 

Rusike has a Zimbabwean father and a South African mother, and holds citizenship in both countries, meaning that he could choose one or the other with regards to international football, although, if he turns out for Zimbabwe next month, then he will not be able to represent Bafana Bafana.

 

The Warriors had originally scheduled a friendly with Malawi, however the latter recently fired their coach and ZIFA have opted to play against Botswana instead.

 

Rusike has had a promising start to his Chiefs career so far, coming off the bench to impress Stuart Baxter and his technical team, and has been touted for a bright future.

 

It remains to be seen whether Gordon Igesund has got the attacker in his plans or whether Rusike will opt to play for Zimbabwe, getting his international career on its way.
