Rangers star sends good luck message to international mates after enforced absence

Rangers midfielder Bongani Zungu has sent a good luck message on Twitter to his South Africa team-mates after being forced to miss the first of two AFCON2022 qualifiers for his country.

The Bafana Bafana star has been withdrawn from the clash with Ghana in his homeland but can link up with them for the second game of the two, facing Sudan in Khartoum.

With Zungu one of a number of players unavailable for the first game, he sent his best wishes to his team-mates as they look to seal their place at next year’s finals in Cameroon.

The South African international will have to quarantine when he returns to Scotland and will miss the Cove Rangers clash in the Scottish Cup – although he’s likely to be banned

Zungu was one of five players to have breached Covid guidelines and is due to find out his fate later this week with a hearing scheduled by the Scottish FA’s disciplinary committee.

South Africa are currently second to Ghana on goal difference in AFCON Qualifying Group C, with Sudan only three points back in third, so Sunday’s fixture in Khartoum will be crucial to their bid to book a spot at the tournament, which will take place in Cameroon next year.

Two Rangers stars will be representing Nigeria in AFCON Qualifiers in the coming days and one was lauded after touching down in Lagos on Monday.
