Round-up of South Africans abroad

Posted: 14 October 2013 Time: 09:21

The international break meant that only a handful of South Africans were in action in club football this weekend.

Young rising star Phakase Mngadi missed out for his Belgian second-tier side Eupen through suspension, while compatriot Ntuthuko Radebe did not play through injury.

Eupen drew the game against Quinton Fortune’s former side Tubize 2-2, and remain unbeaten this season as they seek promotion to the top-flight where Mngadi and Radebe would join the likes of Darren Keet, Anele Ngcongca and Ayanda Patosi.

South African born fullback Storm Roux played for Australian champions Central Coast Mariners in their season opener as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Western Sydney Wanderers.

Roux has already been selected for the New Zealand Under-20 side and is expecting this 2013/14 season to be his breakthrough year in the A-League.

Another South African, goalkeeper David Spence, was on the bench for Perth Glory.

Devan Jacobs played for Berwick Rangers in the Scottish fourth-tier as they lost 3-2 at home to Elgin City, while a division above, Jonathan Brown was taken off in the second half of Brechin City’s 3-2 loss to Stenhousemuir.

And Pietermaritzburg-born centre-back Michael Travis played for Arbroath as they beat Airdrieonians 3-2.

Finally, Tiyiselani Shipalane was missing for USA second-tier side Carolina Railhawks as they were thumped 4-0 by New York Cosmos.

I don't understand this now isn't that when it's FIFA week no local games can be played or is it our SAFA reading the rules incorrectly again!!!!!!!

ZipZap I think it depend on the local FA and its professional league, I know leagues in Nigeria,Cameroon,Ghana,Zambia and other African countries where active this weekend because majority if not all of their international players are based in Europe therefor it doesn't affect their local football.

Thappy Makay ZipZap I thank you and i think that should apply here cause only 2 or 3 PSL teams have more than 2 players in the national team most of the teams are just having holidays for nothing.
