According to KickOff, Ngwenya admits that the former Orlando Pirates midfielder is nearing his return after joining the national side with a knee injury.
“We are happy with Jali’s progress and we can see a lot of improvement compared to when he arrived,” said Ngwenya.
“Let me say he is 95 percent close to recovery and could play in the upcoming international friendly match against Cameroon in Gabon, albeit only one half so we don’t strain the knee – but that will be the technical team’s decision whether they want to use him or not.”
