CHIEFS STAR EDSON CASTILLO TO FACE BRAZIL
Additionally, Edson Castillo is set for a special experience.
Following his move to Mzansi in July from Monagas in his homeland, the 29-year-old is set to make his seventh appearance for Venezuela.
The news was revealed by Amakhosi after Castillo’s four goals in 12 appearances (PSL and MTN8). The midfielder’s last national runout was in February 2022, where he was an unused substitute in a 4-1 defeat to Uruguay.
“Congratulations to Edson Castillo on your National Team Call-up,” the club said on their WhatsApp channel.
Meanwhile, Chiefs are hours away from finding out who they will face in the brand-new Carling Knockout Cup.
