The Bafana Bafana talisman has been used sparingly of late, but must have given manager Philippe Clement a selection headache after coming off the bench to provide an assist as Brugge went on to claim a narrow 2-1 win over Waasland-Beveren in their Belgium Jupiler League encounter last weekend.


The 25-year-old South African international has already featured in the UEFA Champions League this campaign, most notably putting an impressive display as Brugge held 13-time European champions Real Madrid to an emphatic 2-2 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Clement has named the Bafana attacker in his 23-man squad, and South Africans will be waiting with baited breath to see if he does get a run.
