Furman: We Must Continue Improving

Bafana Bafana midfielder, Dean Furman, is currently preparing for a busy season in English football but reflecting back on his time with the national team this year, and is hoping they can grow from strength to strength.

"In England there are no holidays or breaks from the season over Christmas. We have many games in and around this period so it's training and games, while spending time with the family for me," Furman told the Siya crew.

The Doncaster Rovers midfielder has established himself as a key player in Gordon Igesund's squad, and recently put in another superb display alongside Andile Jali and Oupa Manyisa as South Africa beat world champions Spain in an international friendly.

"The midfield is very competitive as is the whole squad at the moment. It is great that players are playing all over the world and hopefully our different styles and experience at club level can compliment each other," Furman added.

"I have enjoyed playing with all the central midfield players including KG (Kagisho Dikgacoi), Jali, May (Mahlangu) and Yeye (Reneilwe Letsholonyane)."

Looking ahead after disappointingly failing to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Furman told Soccer-Laduma that it is vital that the team works on its finishing.

"I think it's vital we continue to improve in all areas of our play both in attack and defence. We must become more clinical in front of goal throughout the team as we have been creating a lot of chances which we must take to finish teams off."
