Mashaba calls up Sekola
Bafana Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba, has called-up Free State Stars striker, Moeketsi Sekola, to face Sudan in their 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
A win against Sudan would guarantee South Africa a spot in the AFCON tournament next year.
Mashaba had to call-up Sekola on Thursday, due to the late withdrawals from midfielder, Sibusiso Vilakazi, who has a toe injury, as well as midfielder, May Mahlangu, who earlier this week was barred from future national call-ups after stating that he will be unavailable due to fatigue.
Sekola has said that he is honoured that Mashaba chose him to join his team and has issued a huge “thank you” to the coach for believing in him.
“I’m very happy. I’ve been waiting for this chance and it finally came. I’m excited for this call up,” he said.
The striker added that he is impressed with the Bafana coach and hopes to impress him in the last two AFCON games.
Bafana will also be facing Nigeria at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo on the 19th of November.
