2009 FIFA Confederations Cup: Siboniso Gaxa - Younia Mahmoud (PA)
A product of the South African-based FC Copenhagen School of Excellence, Siboniso Gaxa's talent was discovered at an early age and he has been developing into a world-class wing-back ever since. His speedy runs on the right flank give Bafana more width going forward as it allows Teko Modise and other creative midfielders to cut inside. Gaxa's versatility, hard work and consistency have drawn interest from teams in Italy.  

Gaxa's impressive performances have made him a key player for PSL side Mamelodi Sundowns. He was part of the South African U-20 squad at the CAF African Youth Championships in Burkina Faso in 2003 and has also represented South Africa at U-17 and of course senior level.

During the Confederations Cup he was named South Africa's best player at the tournament, although technically, he needs to work on his crossing ability, as he often gets into dangerous positions where a deadly cross would make all the difference.
