Vilakazi ruptured his left tendon Achilles in a practice match against SuperSport United on Wednesday morning.
Bafana won the match 1-0 courtesy of a first half goal by Lebo Mothiba.
City beat the Bafana Bafana camp by announcing Links’ call-up first on their social media accounts.
“Gift Links has been called up to represent Bafana Bafana against the Seychelles in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers,” read a tweet from City.
“Yo Thabo, Thami hold up, I’m on the way!” ????
