Phil Masinga has passed away.
The Bafana Bafana account confirmed this in a tweet earlier on Sunday.
According to reports, Masinga was hospitalised in December. He will fondly be remembered his goal-scoring prowess for club and country.
Masinga was also part of South Africa's golden generation of footballers who plied their trade overseas for many years.
His football career started in the youth ranks for Kaizer Chiefs. He left to play for Jomo Cosmos and then joined Mamelodi Sundowns before making the big move to England.
