Why doesn’t Billiat Khama play for Bafana Bafana

Why doesn’t Billiat Khama play for Bafana Bafana. This is something interesting to write about because a lot of people asked this question then we decided to write about it and give answers to them.

Why doesn't Billiat Kham play for Bafana Bafana.

The answer is very simple but it requires a broad explanation

Steve Komphela is very happy to be a member of the great Mamelodi Sundowns

Because he’s Zimbabwean. He was born in Zimbabwe, to Zimbabwean parents. If one of his parents was a South African then it would have been easy for him to play for Bafana Bafana but he played all his junior football for Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe sensibly selected him for his full international debut thus cutting off any chance of his being selected for South Africa. Although, to be clear, he has never suggested that he had any desire to play for South Africa, and why should he? He’s Zimbabwean.

It was a personal decision He made, beside he was not this popular when he decided to start playing for Zimbabwe ahead of South Africa, if South Africa knew he was going to be this big they would have courted him.

Fifa: Players can now switch countries if they have played no more than three competitive matches

The article bellow is from bbc.com

Fifa’s annual congress has approved a rule change which will give players greater scope to switch national teams.

Players can now switch if they have played no more than three competitive matches at senior level prior to them turning 21.

Appearances in World Cup finals matches or continental finals such as the European Championships would prohibit a change of eligibility.

However, appearing in a tournament qualifier would not.

Previous rules ensured that one appearance in a competitive match, including Nations League games, tied players to that country for the remainder of their international careers.

The issue of players switching international eligibility has been a particular talking point for both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in recent times.

Most recently, Oxford United midfielder Mark Sykes opted to declare for the Republic of Ireland last month after representing Northern Ireland Under-21s on several occasions.

The Republic have also been on the receiving end of previous switches with London-born West Ham player Declan Rice declaring for England last year after playing in three senior friendlies for the Irish.

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish also declared for the county of his birth in 2016 after playing for the Republic’s under-21s.

Delegates from the 211 national associations gathered virtually for Fifa’s 70th Congress because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Do you think Khama was going to do well at Bafana Bafana ?
