The 38-year-old spoke exclusively with Soccer Laduma and was asked to name which five former teammates he would put in his five-a-side team.

Unlike many international stars, who often just chose the five strongest attacking players that come to their minds, McCarthy suggested he would field four outfield players and one goalkeeper.

He then went on to explain why his former Buccaneers teammate Moeneeb Josephs was his choice as shot stopper.

“I would have a goalkeeper,” he told Soccer Laduma.

“I’d put Moeneeb Josephs in as he’s an incredible goalkeeper with fantastic ability.

“It’s such a shame that he didn’t go to Europe. He had everything to succeed in Europe, but luckily for South Africa, he played his whole career in SA.”

The Bafana Bafana all-time record scorer also picked another South African star, whom he played alongside for the national team.

In addition, two Champions League winners from his time at Porto made his selection as well as one former Blackburn Rovers star.
