Kaizer Chiefs striker, Bernard Parker, has expressed his excitement ahead of Bafana Bafana's friendly clash with World and European champions, Spain, on Tuesday (November 19) next week.
The player is also in Gordon Igesund's squad to face Swaziland in an international friendly on Friday (November 15). However, it is understandably the match against Spain that's recieving the most attention as La Furia Roja are an absolutely world class side.
Just a few of the massive names selected in Vicente del Bosque's squad are Sergio Ramos, Xabi Alonso (both Real Madrid), Jesus Navas (Manchester City), Juan Mata (Chelsea), Javi Martinez (Bayern Munich) and David Villa (Atletico Madrid).
Bafana last met Spain in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup 3rd/4th place Play-off at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg and it took an extra time goal from Xabi Alonso to steal a 3-2 win for Spain.
Nonetheless, Parker is treating the game against Spain as a challenge and went on to explain how much of an honour it is to represent the country.
The 27-year-old told Chiefs' official website, "It is another honour. Every national team call up is special. I feel great and looking forward to face the European and World champions. It is always hard to leave family behind but they do understand that duty is calling and one has to honour the nation."
