Andile Jali, Orlando Pirates star, ex-learner of TuksSport High School and former TuksFootball Academy player made his Bafana Bafana Debut in the 3-0 victory over Zimbabwe.

Andile Jali is another of TuksFootball Academy's success stories. He was one of the first Coca Cola Star players who was selected to become part of the Football Academy. Since 2007 he has been one of the side's most consistent performers. His brilliant footwork and ball control did not go unnoticed as he has been drafted by Orlando Pirates in 2009 to form part of their 2009/2010 squad.

The 19-year old midfielder was given the opportunity to make his Bafana debut when he replaced Buccaneers team-mate Teko Modise in the final three minutes of the clash .

Other stars groomed by the Academy include the likes of Lerato Chabangu, Robyn Johannes, Bongani Khumalo, George Maluleka, Dumisani Masilela and Clifford Mulenga.
