Modiba: It Was A Dream Come True

Bafana Bafana international Aubrey Modiba has revealed it was a dream come true for him to represent the country at senior level, despite South Africa's disappointing result against Mauritania on Friday.

The 21-year-old made his national team debut in Shakes Mashaba's starting line-up on Friday, when Bafana played their final qualifying match for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations competition.

"I just want to thank God and my family and everyone who has been there for me, it was a dream come true for me to represent my country at the senior level. It shows my hard work really paid off," Modiba told the Siya crew. 

"I was bit nervous, but the older guys in the team pushed me to play my normal game. I'm hoping to see more of us youngsters making it in the team and hope it doesn't stop here."

Bafana will face the Pharaohs of Egypt tonight at the Orlando Stadium at 7.05pm for the Nelson Mandela Challenge, and Modiba will look to make a positive impact if he comes off the bench as a substitute for Mashaba's side.

The winger recently made the move from Cape Town City to SuperSport United in the final hours of the transfer window on Wednesday, 31 August.

Matsatsantsa have a history of selling their players to European-based clubs, and indications are that the player, who is already one of the most highly rated youngsters in the PSL, is eager to ply his trade abroad.
