It was rare to see a South African player perform in Europe because of Apartheid and the international ban on sport in the country.

When the ban was lifted Phil Masinga made a name for himself at Leeds United in the English Premier League.

Bafana Bafana legend Benni McCarthy has acknowledged Masinga's role in 'paving the way' for him.
