Bafana newcomer Lebogang Mothiba hits hat-trick for Valenciennes

Posted: 2 October 2017 Time: 07:20

Lebogang Mothiba hit a match-winning hat-trick for Valenciennes ahead of his first Bafana Bafana camp.

The 21-year-old's treble included the winner in a 4-3 victory at Orléans in France on Friday night.

Mothiba has netted five goals this season on loan at the second-tier side from Ligue One outfit Lille.

Bafana coach Stuart Baxter handed Mothiba his maiden national team call-up for Saturday's must-win World Cup qualifier with Burkina Faso at FNB Stadium.

Mothiba faces competition for Bafana game-time from fellow forwards Dino Ndlovu, Bradley Grobler and Percy Tau.

Meanwhile, Baxter has enlisted Mamelodi Sundowns' Motjeka Madisha as a replacement for suspended Kaizer Chiefs centre-back Erick Mathoho.
