FIFA World Cup

Emotional day at Kaizer Chiefs as management sent a heartfelt goodbye wishes to their Players

Six Kaizer Chiefs players have left to prove their worth for their birth countries in FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualification matches as the competition for next year's showcase tournament in Qatar heats up.

Daniel Akpeyi has returned to the Nigerian squad, while Khama Billiat has embraced the call and joined the Zimbabwe national team. Four Amakhosi stars will be on South Africa's roster as they prepare for the Ethiopian challenge.

Bruce Bvuma, Njabulo Ngcobo, Njabulo Blom, and Sfiso Hlanti are all excited to play in Bafana Bafana's blockbuster match against Ethiopia on 9 October away from home and 12 October at FNB Stadium.

Blom and Ngcobo both played in Bafana Bafana's 1-0 victory over Ghana in Johannesburg in September, and both contributed to the victory, which puts South Africa in first place with four points.

Knowledge Musona, a former Chiefs striker, will team up with Khama Billiat in Group G to take on Ghana in Cape Coast on 9 October and Harare on 12 October. The Warriors will be looking to get their campaign back on track after a scoreless home draw with Bafana Bafana and a 1-0 road loss to Ethiopia.

Daniel Akpeyi, the Chiefs' penultimate player on FIFA World Cup Qualifying duty, joins a star-studded Nigerian lineup that includes Napoli's on-form attacker Victor Osimhen. In front of the two veteran goalkeepers in the club, Francis Uzoho of AC Omonia in Cyprus and Maduka Okoye, Akpeyi will hope to start.
