Thanduyise Abraham Khuboni (born 22 May 1986 in Clermont, KwaZulu-Natal) is a South African footballer who currently plays for Golden Arrows in the Premier Soccer League and South Africa.

Playing career[edit]

Khuboni spent his youth career at a number of local amateur clubs before joining Golden Arrows in 2006. He was part of the Arrows team that won the 2009 MTN 8 Cup. Khuboni played in every minute of Arrows' 30 games in the 2011–12 season.[2] In January 2013, Khuboni was linked with a transfer to an unnamed German Bundesliga club as his contract was expiring at the end of the season.[3] Arrows subsequently exercised a 1-year option they had on his contract, thus tying him to the club until the end of the 2013–14 season.[4]

International career[edit]

Khuboni made his international debut for South Africa on 27 January 2010 in a 3–0 victory against Zimbabwe in a friendly match played in Durban.[5] He was part of the South African squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup[6] and played in their final group stage match against France.[7]
