Leading AmaZulu goalpoacher Lehlohonolo Majoro becomes the latest member of the 'Usuthu' squad to jet off to represent his country straight after the completion of the league campaign.
The disappointment over the Kaizer Chiefs match on Saturday has to be a thing of the past for Majoro, Nhlanhla Khuzwayo, Thami Sangweni, Tangeni Shipahu and Mbongeni Mzimela and as they report for national duty.
Khuzwayo and Sangweni left for Johannesburg on Monday morning to be part of South Africa’s U23 side‘s London Qualifier match against Benin in June 4th at the Rene Pleven Stadium in Cotonou.
Khuzwayo who’s had an indifferent season with ‘Usuthu’ has his targets on redeeming himself with a good showing for his country.
“Yes it’s been a very tough season and it wasn’t nice to lose like that against Chiefs but the team played well.
A lot of things didn’t go our way as a team as well, but I believe for a baby to learn how to walk it’s never too easy at first.
We’re still building and with all of us learning in the national teams I think we will be a different team next season,” said the young minder.
Mbongeni Mzimela will play the under-study to Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumelang Khune and Bidvest Wits’ Darien Keet in Bafana Bafana’s second leg qualifier Afcon against Egypt in Cairo in June 5th.
Namibian International striker Tangeni Shipahu also jetted home early to prepare for the Brave Warriors’ qualifier against Burkina Faso in Windhoek. Namibia will play in June 4th.
Thami Sangweni has renewed his contract to a further three year with Usuthu.
