Manyisa made his debut for Bafana Bafana in that unfortunate match against Sierra Leone, when the team thought a draw would qualify them for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, only to lose out to Niger.

Since then the Orlando Pirates midfielder has featured 11 more times for the national team, although he has not managed to cement his place in the side.

‘Ace’ is a fan-favourite for the Buccaneers, however, known for his great midfield partnership with Andile Jali. He was also the undisputed hero of Pirates’ MTN8 triumph in 2011, scoring long-range goals in both the semi-final against Mamelodi Sundowns and the Final against Kaizer Chiefs.
