South African football has seen consistent growth in its youth development in recent years. As one of the most-watched sports leagues of the country, Premier Division has played a significant role in introducing a new generation of South African players.

Fortunately, the national league is licensed by FIFA 22, meaning we can search for the native players who currently play in South Africa, in addition to those who have already broken into European football.

Luthar Singh is the highest-rated South African player in the game. With an overall rating of 74, the young winger is already an above-average option for your side’s midfield.

However, if you decide to develop the 24-year-old further, you can activate his potential ranking of 80. Since joining Danish side Copenhagen from SC Braga in August 2021, Singh has gradually established himself into a regular first-team player.
