Bafana Bafana and Mamelodi Sundowns defender Mosa Lebusa is thankful to be a part of Molefi Ntseki’s 26-man squad to face Ghana and Sudan in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers.
South Africa will welcome the Black Stars on March 25 at home before facing Sudan in an away match on March 28.
“I am excited, it is always an honour to represent the country, funny enough I heard the news from my teammates as we were in a camp, it came as a surprise to me I must say,” Lebusa told Sundowns’ official site.
However, the 28-year-old centre-back was not the only player from the Brazilians to receive the national call up. Thapelo Morena, Andile Jali, Rivaldo Coetzee, Themba Zwane and Kermit Erasmus were also rewarded with Bafana call ups after their impressive display in the DStv Premiership and continental competition.
Lebusa has six caps for Bafana, having made his debut in 2015 in an international friendly match against Costa Rica.
“Every player that has been selected deserves to be there as they are the best players for the country at the moment,” he adds.
South Africa and Ghana are now level on points in Group C with nine points after four outings with two games remaining.
