Club career

Siphiwe Tshabalala played at the Kaizer Chiefs academy but only broke through to the senior team after spells with Alexandra United and Free State Stars. Before the start of the 2007/8 season Chiefs bought back their own product and Tshabalala was used as the team’s first-choice left-wing. During the 2008/9 pre-season, coach Muhsin Ertugral began to occasionally employ the left-footer in the centre of the midfield.

International career

He made his national team debut in a friendly against Egypt on January 14, 2006.  Tshabalala was part of the South African squad at 2006 African Nations Cup, 2008 African Nations Cup and the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. He has so far been capped 48 times scoring six goals.
