Shakes Mashaba has continued with his support of young South African footballers, calling up Bidvest Wits’ Phumlani Ntshangase for the Nelson Mandela Challenge.

The 19-year-old midfielder was informed of his call-up this morning, and the Clever Boys have agreed that the midfielder can report for national team duty on a non-FIFA weekend, as can his teammate, Siyabonga Nhlapo.

Thulani Hlatshwayo and Jabu Shongwe however, have been withdrawn from the Bafana team and will not be taking part in the clash with Cote d’Ivoire this weekend.

The news was confirmed by Wits’ COO, Jonathan Schloss, who said, “We’ve agreed to release Siya and Phumlani, who got a call up this morning, however Tyson and Jabu will not be travelling to the national team.”
