Thwala was chosen as part of the ‘2010’ squad that played in the Cosafa Castle Cup in 2005 and has graduated to the real thing.

He also competed at the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but had to pull out of the 2009 Confederations Cup squad because of injury. He won 10 caps at Under-23 level and played at the 2003 All-Africa Games in Nigeria.

He plays at left-back for Bafana, but usually at centre-back for Orlando Pirates, for whom he was top-scorer in the 2008/09 Premier Soccer League campaign due to him being the club's penalty taker.

He has never missed a spot-kick in professional football.
