Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has joined the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski in the latest 'FIFA Ultimate Team of the Week'.

Khune earned international recognition following his heroics in South Africa's 1-1 2018 World Cup qualifying draw against Burkina Faso last Saturday.

The FUT Team of the Week (TOTW) is a weekly team of 23 in-form player cards. These players will be boosted with a stat upgrade by EA Sports, based on how well they have performed over the last week in real-life football fixtures.

The 29-year-old shotstopper pulled off a number of brilliant saves to keep Bafana in the game away to The Stallions, before helping them earn a point in his 80th appearance for the senior men's national team.

As a result, 'Itu' makes the cut as one of only three Africans, alongside Tunisia defender Aymen Abdennour and Egypt winger Mohamed Salah, in Week Four's 23-man squad.
