Why Selection Of Chiefs Goalkeeper Is Supported

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma has not been getting game-time at the club, but a former goalkeeper at the Soweto giants has backed his inclusion in the Bafana Bafana squad to face Guinea and France. 

Broos had included four goalkeepers in his preliminary squad, but the injury to Amakhosi's Brandon Petersen meant he was simply able to go with the other three in captain Ronwen Williams, Veli Mothwa and Bvuma, who has made three appearances for Amakhosi in all competitions this season. The last time Bvuma played in goal for Chiefs was in September.  

"Bvuma is a good goalkeeper. I think the Bafana Bafana coach has seen the potential in Bvuma and can see how good he is. The boy is working hard and whenever he gets a chance at Chiefs, he performs well. Goalkeeping is not the same like playing inside. I feel that he believes in the three goalkeepers he has selected because since he took over as Bafana Bafana coach, he is always selecting them," former Amakhosi shot-stopper Aubrey Mathibe told the Siya crew. 

"But the boy is talented. I think in future he will do well because being in the national team is a motivation. He is competing with good goalkeepers at Chiefs, so it's good for him. It shows that they have quality goalkeepers. Whenever he gets his chance, he should grab it, just like Petersen did. I am happy for him. He still has a lot of time to learn and being part of the national team will help him."
