A product of South Africa’s School of Excellence, otherwise known as the talent factory in the country, Bryce Moon started his career as an attacking right-winger, but with time he has made the successful transition to right-back. He has, however, found it difficult to cement a regular place in the South African starting 11, thanks in large part to fierce competition from the ever-improving Siboniso Gaxa, and Moon’s biggest challenge will be to unseat the domestic-based Gaxa. What has also played to his disadvantage is that whenever afforded a chance, he has not done enough to guarantee a starting berth.
Moon took his first steps on the national-team ladder at the tender age of 13 when he captained South Africa's U-14 side, going on to enjoy a successful period with South Africa's U-23s before making the jump to full international level. By no means a household name as yet, even in his homeland, the FIFA World Cup™ offers Moon an ideal opportunity to show just how good he is. He offers South Africa attacking options down the right flank. He started his professional football career with South African side, Ajax Cape Town before joining Northern Ireland club, Coleraine. He returned to Ajax, but soon left to join Greek giants Panathinaikos, who loaned him out to PAOK last season. Although he did not play at the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, his form in Greece has been such that bigger clubs in England and elsewhere have been following his progress.
