Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana striker Keryn Jordan has died of cancer in his hometown of Pretoria. He was 37.
Jordan represented the national team on two occasions - both in 2000.
Jordan started his career at Pretoria City (now SuperSport United), before transferring to Manning Rangers where he won the golden boot during the 1997/98 Premier Soccer League season with 11 goals. Jordan also played for Moroka Swallows.
In 2004 Jordan moved to New Zealand where he represented Auckland City in the 2006 and 2009 FIFA Club World Cups, and scored 61 goals in 79 matches for the club, helping Auckland to three NZFC and two O-League titles.
Jordan announced his retirement from all levels of domestic and international football on March 19, 2010, citing ongoing knee injuries.
Jordan was first diagnosed with cancer 13 years ago. It started as a melanoma spot but spread to his brain. He returned to South Africa earlier this year to continue his treatment.
Sport24 offers its sincere condolences to the families and friends of Keryn Jordan.
