Cape Town City hitman Khanyisa Mayo was called up out of the blue by Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos on Monday for their Fifa Series international friendlies against Andorra and Algeria later this month.

The African Cup of Nations bronze medallist will play for the first time since they made the country proud in Ivory Coast when they tackle Andorra on March 21 before facing the hosts on March 26.

And despite being left out of the preliminary squad, Broos called up City’s 25-year-old hotshot Mayo who has found the back of the net nine times for his club in the PSL – the second-most of all players.

Mayo, who made the last of his five appearances for Bafana against Eswatini in October last year, is one of 10 new faces in the squad – the others being Bruce Bvuma, Tapelo Xoki, Siyabonga Ngezana, Goodman Mosele, Grant Margeman, Patrick Maswanganyi, Mlondi Mbanjwa, Elias Mokwana and Iqraam Rayners.

The latter and Mayo are the only players from Mother City teams in the squad, with Stellies’ Rayners trailing his City counterpart with two PSL goals.

Bafana squad for Algeria

Goalkeepers: Ronwen Williams, Bruce Bvuma and Ricardo Goss.

Defenders: Thapelo Morena, Aubrey Modiba, Grant Kekana, Sydney Mobbie, Nkosinathi Sibisi, Tapelo Xoki and Siyabonga Ngezana.
