The international break allows local football fans to get a glimpse of some of their favourite players that had been playing abroad, as they don the colours of the national team.
Players like Anele Ngcongca and Andile Jali, who play in Begluim have been regulars in the national team in recent months but who has caught your eye the most?
Ayanda Patosi has been in fine form for Belgian outfit Lokeren this season with him being named in the most recent Jupiler League team of the week. Out in Sweden, Tefu Mashamaite is said to have left a lasting impression with Hacken F.C, helping the team secure a mid-table 7th positon in the Allsvenskan league standings.
We have not seen much of our big hitters in the English Premier league this season as Steven Pienaar has been battling to stay fit for Everton, while Tokelo Rantie continues to claw his way back into the Bournemouth starting XI.
Thulani Serero could be deemed as one of South Africa’s finest talents abroad but has dropped down the pecking order quite considerably at Ajax Amsterdam this season.
Another name that we could speak about is that of the rejuvenated Dino Ndlovu. The striker was almost seen as an average player in the PSL while playing for Mpumalanga Black Aces last season. Ever since he had moved to Cyprus club Anorthosis at the beginning of the season, he had found his goal scoring boots.
Having said that, which South African player abroad has impressed you the most?
