Speaking to the media this week, Mosimane pointed out that the likes of Rivaldo Coetzee and Mosa Lebusa are looking to raise their hand and be considered for a spot in the South African national team setup.

“Riva must play now, because Riva I think is an intentional player for Bafana, so also to help him a little bit so Stuart could see him, that he’s got a centre-back. Mosa has been playing, Stuart knows Mosa is there, so to increase and also help Bafana with the number of centre-backs, so in my opinion, I think we’ve been having not really convincing centre-backs for Bafana Bafana,” Mosimane said after Sundowns’ 3-2 win over Cape Town City midweek. 

“Before we used to know who is playing so at this point in time it could be a little bit different, so the position is up for grabs. Mosa Lebusa has been playing Champions League so he is also raising his hand,” he added.
