Orlando Pirates Defender Happy To Be In Bafana Bafana
Orlando Pirates defender, Tercious Malepe, says he is happy for his inclusion in the Bafana Bafana squad for COSAFA Cup.
The SA U20 captain is one of the players called up to the country’s senior national team for the tournament taking place in Rustenburg. Speaking to Pirates’ official website, Malepe confirmed that he was surprised with the call-up to the senior national team.
“This call-up came as a surprise but a pleasant surprise at that. We (players) all dream of representing our countries and personally this call up is one step closer for me realising my dream.
“I am grateful for the call-up. I want to represent my country at all levels and this call-up has just motivated me even more. I believe the experience I have gained playing in the national team at Under 20 level will help me a great deal to adjust and become an even better player,” the 20-year-old centre-back told Bucs’ website.
