After two solid seasons at Orlando Pirates, midfielder Oupa Manyisa has been rewarded for his hard work with a place in the 23-man Bafana Bafana squad to play in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, starting 19 January.
Manyisa told the Siya crew that this all happened at the perfect time for him as a player.
"I think this is the perfect time for me to represent my country. I think it has all happened because of the hard work I have put in at Pirates," he said.
"When I play I really just have to put in the greatest work rate and help my team. But it is good to see that the coach saw something in me and I am here to represent my country.
"We want to make our country proud and I also think we have what it takes to make it in this tournament. The work rate the players are showing at training is great and it shows how hungry we are all for the team to suceed and we will do just that," Manyisa concluded.
