In the squad’s afternoon training session at the Somhlolo Stadium on Monday, Mdluli was hard at work with the four goalkeepers in camp, namely; Sandile ‘Nkomishi’ Ginindza, Nhlanhla Gwebu, Sidumo Vilakati and Mphikeleli ‘Rabo’ Dlamini.

Head coach Harries Bulunga acknowledged the presence of Mdluli and said his vast knowledge will help the team.

“As you can see Mdluli has been added and he will be assisting the goalkeepers. He is a qualified and well trained goalkeeper coach,” Bulunga said.

Bulunga further added that he, alongside ‘Shilton’ is closely monitoring the shot stoppers. Sihlangu started camp on Friday at the National Football Association (FA) Technical Centre in preparation for the Nigeria game.
