Players Abroad

Lars Veldwijk

Veldwijk grabbed an assist in Sparta Rotterdam's 3-1 win over Almere in the Eerste Divisie, which takes his overall tally 23 goal contributions (17 goals, six assists) in 29 league games this season.

The result moved the oldest club in the Netherlands into second-place but they still trail league leaders FC Twente by 11 points.

Dino Ndlovu

Ndlovu grabbed his second goal of the season in as many games for Chinese outfit Zhejiang Greentown, which proved to be the winner as they beat Heilongjiang Lava Spring 2-1.

Lyle Foster

The 18-year-old Amajita striker played in AS Monaco II home loss to Jura Sud on Friday before being called up to the first-team by manager Leonardo Jardim.

While he was left on the bench as an unused substitute, a Ligue 1 debut seems imminent for the promising teenager as the side's 1-0 win over second-placed LOSC Lille eased their relegation concerns - moving them eight points off the final relegation spot.

Kamohelo Mokotjo

Mokotjo played 82 minutes of Brentford’s 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Keagan Dolly

Dolly bagged another 90 minutes for Montpellier II as they lost 2-1 to Blagnac, as he nears his first-team return.

Lebogang Phiri

After missing out on the latest Bafana Bafana squad to face Libya, Phiri sent out a clear message to the national team selectors with a man of the match display.

The 24-year-old produced a midfield masterclass to help keep Guingamp's survival hopes alive.

Thulani Serero

Thulani Serero played the full 90 minutes and had more possession (7.1%) than any other Vitesse player, as per WhoScored statistics

However, the Eredivisie side, who are pushing for a Europa League qualification spot succumbed to a 3-2 defeat to Heracles.

Overall, the Bafana Bafana midfielder had 84 touches with a 97% pass completion rate.

Bongani Zungu

Like Dolly, Bongani Zungu was fielded in side's reserve team, the former Sundowns star played 83 minutes for Amiens II in the 1-1 draw with Olympique Saint-Quentin.

Zungu is likely to return to first-team action after the international break.

Liam Jordan

Jordan got his ninth assist of the NordicBet LIGA season as HB Köge beat FC Helsingör 2-0

The forward who's been included in South Africa's recent U23 squad has now directly contributed to 14 (five goals, nine assists) in 19 league starts this season.

Kgosi Ntlhe

Ntlhe, 25, was fielded in a ball-playing centre-back role and played out the full 90-minutes for Rochdale, as they drew 0-0 in their League One clash against Oxford United.

Siphiwe Tshabalala

'Shabba' was an unused substitute as Erzurumspor suffered a damaging defeat to fourth-placed Trabzonspor, in what has been a frustrating figure for the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, his side are now six points adrift from safety with eight games remaining.
