Meyiwa Happy To Represent South Africa

After a long time of being on the sidelines at Orlando Pirates, goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa was given a chance after an injury to Moeneeb Josephs. He has performed exceptionally well, so much so that he has earned himself a place in the Bafana Bafana 23-man squad to represent the country in the Afcon 2013 starting on January 19. 

The former Amajita and Amaguluglug goalkeeper tells Soccer-Laduma that what has happened is unbelievable considering the short time he has played as first choice keeper. He gave thanks to God and also thanked everyone who has been there for him through thick and thin. 
 
"I think it has all to do with my team work. I thank my goalkeeper coach, my fellow goalkeepers at the team and everyone at Orlando Pirates for helping me be where I am today. Yes I have played for Under 17, Under 20 and Under 23 but to be part of an Afcon team is unbelievable. 
 
"It is a great achievement on it's own. I am happy to represent my country in such a great tournament which comes once in a while. For now we are not thinking of who will play but we are thinking how best we can win as a team. So I am happy to be part of that team," Meyiwa said.
