Rustenburg - The door is still open for Moeneeb Josephs to return to the national fold, even as early as this week, according to Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane.

Josephs caused a stir last week, announcing his retirement from international football as he turned down a call-up for Bafana duty.

"Moeneeb is within his rights to pitch up today," Mosimane said at the team's training camp in Phokeng, outside Rustenburg, on Monday.

"It's the official first FIFA date and official camp started this morning.

"I have not received an official correspondence from the player.

"I've only heard about his retirement in the media."

Bafana play Ethiopia in their first 2014 Soccer World Cup qualifier at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday.

    SlimKat is correct....Dnt join Bafana Bayanya...Dnt papa!!!Just yesterday, PSL was unfair to SlimKat saying Wayne Sandilas is the goalkeeper of the season...Haaibo!!!How come?Yingxowa engagcwaliyo leya maan...weak Sandilas!!! I'm a Sundowns fan and I tell you straight, Sandilas does not deserve that award.....Back to Slimkat and Bafana Bayanya..How many times is Khune been injured then we use Josephs in that position?Once Khune is okay he simply walk inn to the first 11 without challenging Josephs for the position?Pitso simply pick Khune..Why?

      @Ledi it shows that he did not do enough to get that one, for him to be with the PSL champs does not make him the best on his own. I bet if you watched Sandilands playing as much as you watched Josephs you might see that Sandilands also did well, pity you only noticed the self centred and imature Moneeb. He must not come back until he sorts out his issues, he is confused and MacCafee is not helping either...
