Singh and Phete report for Bafana camp


Luther Singh and Thibang Phete have arrived at the national team camp.

The Portugal-based duo were the only two players missing from the camp after the arrival of Percy Tau on Monday morning.

Both players have been in great form in the Portuguese Primeira Liga where they play for Pacos Ferreira and SAD Belenenses respectively.

Phete has played 19 league games for Belenenses scoring once and assisting another. He has been one of the club’s most consistent performers so far this season and won a couple of Man of the Match awards.

Last year October, coach Molefi Ntseki gave the centre back his maiden national team call-up for the two friendly games against Namibia and Zambia.

He made his debut as Bafana Bafana drew 1-1 against Namibia. The 26-year-old was called up to the squad last year November, but had to pull out due to health reasons.

Luther Singh comes into the camp after an impressive performance for Pacos Ferreira last weekend. The 23-year-old found the back of the net and laid an assist for another strike as Ferreira defeated Moreirense 3-0 in the league.

He was part of the previous two squads and he has played a significant role since his promotion to the senior squad from the U23s. He netted in South Africa’s 1-1 draw with Namibia and laid an assist as Ntseki’s side defeated Sao Tome ePrincipe 4-2 last year November.

On Tuesday evening (18H00), Bafana Bafana is scheduled to train at FNB Stadium. They will have another session on Wednesday evening before taking on Ghana on Thursday night.
