Four UNIZULU football players will be jetting off to a Preliminary USSA Football National Team Camp to be held in University of Free State (Bloemfontein) this weekend (02 – 06 April 2014).
The four players, Thobelani Ndaba, Siphesihle Sokhela Senzo Myeni, and Lindokuhle Mthembu were selected because of their exceptional performance at the University Sport South Africa (USSA Games).
The UNIZULU – Swallows men team were runners-up at that tournament hosted by Durban University of Technology in December last year. Mthembu, a student at UNIZULU, is already contracted to Thanda Royal Zulu team which plies its trade in the Mvela League.
Ndaba and Sokhela will be competing for a place in the USSA under 21 team while Myeni and Mthembu would be hoping for a spot in the national team.
Should Mthembu and Myeni make it to the senior team they would form part of a team that would represent South Africa at an international tournament in South Korea
“We are going there to represent our University and to make sure we leave the indelible mark about KZN talent as well,” said Myeni who has previously represented South Africa in international tournament last year in Zambia, where he was a top goal scorer for the USSA team at the tournament.
Ndaba, doing level 2 in Bachelor of Education, Sokhela doing level 2 in B.A Dual Major and Myeni is doing an Honours Degree in Development Studies
