22-year-old SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams is cherishing every moment as a Bafana Bafana player and the international experience he is racking up from representing the nation.
Williams who is currently Senzo Meyiwa backup says he is both elated and humbled at every national call up he receives and hopes to form part of the future South African National team.
Speaking to the Siya crew, the Bafana number two said he is optimistic about the future of his role in the Bafana setup, and relishes the upcoming international fixture against the All Whites of New Zealand.
“Nothing means more for me then representing my country. I valued my call up against Brazil in March even though we lost the match by a heavy margin. For me it is an honour to play for the nation and I’m delighted Gordon Igesund has afforded me the opportunities I’ve received,” commented the young goal- minder.
“I am still young and being recognised at my age is a blessing. Me being part of the squad will benefit my game in future. What is key at this stage is more me to keep playing regularly at club level. If I can do that then I believe I will always be a part of Bafana.”
“Having Khune and Meyiwa as the senior goalkeepers means I’m learning from the country’s best in-between the sticks. They are like my older brothers and I use every opportunity to learn as much as I can from both them,” said Williams.
His performances for SuperSport United have hailed praises from fellow international keeper Moeneeb Josephs who labelled Williams as the future of South African football.
