Meyiwa Encouraging The Young Keepers

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa is happy to see young goalkeepers getting a chance to represent the national team and told the Siya crew that he doesn’t see the younger keepers as a threat.

Meyiwa was one of a number of Bucs players who were unavailable for national team selection for this coming weekend’s international friendly against Morocco due to Bucs’ involvement in the CAF Champions League semi-final.

The 26-year-old shot stopper has been in tremendous form for Bucs in recent weeks, with some fine saves, and showing real heroics to keep Bucs’ CAF Champions League adventure going. He was justly rewarded by being voted as the club’s Player of the Month for August.

In an interview with Soccer-Laduma, in issue number 842, Meyiwa said, “It is good to see young goalkeepers coming through and doing well, and I want to advise them to keep working hard and not get carried away when people sing their praises.”.

Meanwhile, Bucs striker Kermit Erasmus, who is ineligible to play in the CAF Champions League because of his involvement for SuperSport United in the CAF Confederations Cup before joining Bucs, will try to grab this opportunity in the national side with both hands, as game-time has been hard to come by for the talented striker.

Erasmus told orlandopiratesfc.com, “I know that if I keep working hard I will always be remembered by the national team coaches and being in the team can only help me improve my game. I have to keep working and build on what I have so that I’m prepared to play at the highest level.”
