MBABANE – Eswatini’s lone international player Justice ‘Figa’ Figuareido is the only foreign player currently eligible to play for his new club Cape Town All Stars.

The Sihlangu player is on loan at the South African Cape Town based side from DStv Premeirship outfit TS Galaxy for the current season. The former Maritzburg United player said he was on the sidelines at the GladAfrica Chamionship side because he was still sorting his registration paper-work. “I have played two games for my new team as I was waiting for my work permit,” Figuareido said.

He also disclosed that there were three foreign players who were attached with Igugu leKapa as the team is known in football circles in South Africa. “There are three of us here, but currently I am the only one who is eligible to play as the two are still working on getting their work permits,” he said. Figuareido said he was happy to finally get game time with his new team as he was introduced as a second half substitute in both games that he has played so far.

The player has played for Maritzburg United, the now defunct Mbombela United and TS Galaxy in South Africa and he only played for Denver Sundowns Locally.
The team is currently on position six on the GladAfrica National First Division with 12 points in eight games. They won three games and drew three; on the other hand the side had lost two games.


The University of Pretoria is currently leading the pack with 15 points in eight games while former premier league side Jomo Cosmos are at the basement of the table with three points in eight games. Cape Town All Stars played to a goal-less draw over the weekend were Figa was part of the match as he was introduced in the second stanza of the game.
