After a long tiring flight that took more than 10 hours FARPost can confirm that Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu has touched down in South Africa.
The midfielder was one of two players to have not arrived for the camp, the other being FC Cincinnati anchor Kamohelo Mokotjo.
The arrival of the Glasgow Rangers midfielder is a big boost for coach Molefi Ntseki who will need all the experience and strength in the middle of the park and considering the forced withdrawal of Andile Jali due to injury earlier this week, Zungu is one of the few senior players who will need to step up now.
Zungu comes into the national team set-up oozing with confidence after making his Scottish Premier League debut on Saturday as Glasgow Rangers hammered Hamilton 8-0 to extend their lead at the top of the table.
He returns to the squad after missing out on both the March and October camps. The South African fans will be pleased to have one of the most experienced players in the set up for a Bafana Bafana team that needs to pick up all six points to boost their AFCON 2021 qualification chances.
The 28-year-old will probably be involved in Wednesday’s training sessions as he now has a race against time to make an impression towards the Friday night game against Sao Tome at the Moses Mabhida Stadium (21H00).
