South Africa have called up Kaizer Chiefs forwards Lebogang Manyama to their squad for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Ghana and Sudan this week.
Manyama is a replacement for Mamelodi Sundowns winger Themba Zwane, who has been sidelined by injury.
Manyama has been in good form for Chiefs this season, but the loss of Zwane is a blow for coach Molefi Ntseki.
Manyama won the last of his 16 caps two years ago as Bafana Bafana were bundled out of the World Cup qualifiers by Senegal.
Bafana played Ghana in Cape Coast on Thursday, before dashing home for a meeting with Sudan on Sunday afternoon.

Goalkeepers: Ronwen Williams (SuperSport United), Darren Keet (OH Leuven, Belgium), Ricardo Goss (BidVest Wits)
Defenders: Thulani Hlatshwayo (BidVest Wits), Erick Mathoho (Kaizer Chiefs), Buhle Mkhwanazi (BidVest Wits), Innocent Maela (Orlando Pirates), Thapelo Morena (Mamelodi Sundowns), Sifiso Hlanti (BidVest Wits), Thamsanqa Mkhize (Cape Town City), Mosa Lebusa (Mamelodi Sundowns)
