Hlongwane models Minnesota's new jersey

The Locker Room

South African star Bongokuhle Hlongwane appears to be one of Minnesota United's main players as he is part of the select few who've been chosen to model the club's new jersey. Here's a look!

The story

The former Maritzburg United youngster has found his feet in the United States as his adjustment to the conditions overseas looks seamless.

On Friday, his club posted images of their latest jersey on their social media platforms and you can guess who was on the cover - Mzansi's very own starlet!

Quickly becoming the face of the club

The Major League Soccer side announced its shirt release on Instagram, in a post that was captioned: "For the Oceans, From the Oceans. Our 2022 @adidas Primeblue jersey, made with Parley Ocean Plastic, is here." 

For starters, the shirt has a striking blue camouflage-like design, which is well-balanced with adidas' red stripes. Its AEROREADY technology absorbs moisture and makes the wearer feel dry. It also has a tagless collar, which allows for extra comfort.

Big player for Bafana Bafana

The 21-year-old has once again been included in Hugo Broos' latest squad for the upcoming 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

He now looks set to add to his eights caps when the national team takes on Morocco next month, while the fixture against Zimbabwe has been cancelled due to the Warriors' elimination from the qualifiers.
