Bafana Coach Hugo Broos Calls Up Given Msimango After Grant Kekana Pulled Out Through Injury

Msimango, a Kaizer Chiefs player, has been called up by coach Hugo Broos to make his Bafana debut due to Grant Kekana’s injury.

The Chiefs defender may play for Bafana against a Nigerian team without star attacker Victor Osihmen on Friday, June 7, 2024.

Bafana confirmed Msimango’s call-up on their Twitter (X) profile.

According to iDiski Times, Broos, who returned Lyle Foster to Bafana, believes Msimango can compete worldwide.

Broos said:

“As important as the quality is the mentality. And that’s important, to see what the mentality is and how his behaviour is in the group – is it a guy, when he’s on the bench, who puts everything in trouble, or is it a guy, when you need him, he’s there.”

Local football fans took to social media to praise Msimango, feeling that the 27-year-old had the qualities to be a star player for Broos’ side.

Masixole Junior is a fan of Msimango:

“Those who lack football knowledge will say negative things about this guy and forget that he doesn’t play alone at Chiefs, but looking at the individual performance, he is good.”

BRolly LUthando backed Msimango:

“Captain fantastic. Go and represent us well.”

Charmaine Charmza wished Msimango well:

“All the best, Given.”

Amila Koti is pessimistic:

“Bringing bad luck to Bafana Bafana.”

Sebolaishi Jonas praised Msimango:

“He is currently the best defender in South Africa.”
