South Africans abroad: Mahlangu and Rantie return to clubs in Sweden

May Mahlangu and Tokelo Rantie will play this weekend as the Allsvenskan continues after the international break
Bafana Bafana players May Mahlangu and Tokelo Rantie will look to shake off the disappointment of their loss against Ethiopia when they return to club action in Sweden this weekend.

The international break saw the two players travel to Cameroon and Ethiopia with the Bafana Bafana squad. While neither player made telling contributions during the matches against Central African Republic and Ethiopia, they return to Sweden to continue their important roles for Malmo FF and Helsingborg.

Rantie will re-join Malmo FF and should continue to be a crucial player in the team's attacking reserves when they host Elfsborg on Monday night. 

Malmo currently occupy 4th place on the Allsvenskan standings and will seek a win against second-placed Elfsborg. Rantie has started 11 times this season for the Swedish club, scoring 5 goals.

May Mahlangu's Helsingborg currently top the league standings in Sweden and can move six points ahead of Elfsborg if they defeat Kalmar on Sunday. Mahlangu remains a vital midfielder for the team and has started all eleven matches this season.

In the Swedish second division Landkrona's Bradley Ralani will be in action on Monday night when his club faces Jonkoping Sodra. Landkrona are currently in 9th place on the Superettan table. Ralani has scored twice in 12 games for the side this season.

Orebro defender Ayanda Nkili will also be in action next week when the Superettan leaders play Llungskile. Nkili has played in all 13 games for the club this season.
