Tshabalala made his national team debut in a friendly against Egypt on 14 January 2006.

He was part of the South African squad at 2006 African Nations Cup, 2008 African Nations Cup and the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.

On 11 June 2010, gaining his 50th cap for the nation of South Africa, he scored the first goal of the 2010 FIFA World Cup against Mexico in the 55th minute. The game went on to finish at a 1–1 draw. The goal later received a nomination for goal of the year by FIFA.
