The shot-stopper who has captained South Africa to a successful trip to Congo, spoke to Orlando Pirates' website at the national team camp in Polokwane and admit to having been capped for a sixth time.
“It shows that patience pays; I think at Pirates we have a very good foundation from development and that is what makes me perform well at this level,” said Meyiwa.
“I hope I can improve everyday so that I get more call ups. That (Congo) victory is water under the bridge.Now it is back to work and show the coach we are ready to face the next battle.”
Meyiwa reveals that retaining the captaincy shows that Shakes Mashaba believes in his leadership and admits that role does not get any easier.
“It is hard sometimes to be the Captain as you have to be ready to protect the team; but everything is going okay and I'm satisfied with what I have done so far being the Captain.”
Bafana Bafana are a point above Congo in their AFCON group and a win against the side in Polokwane will put Mashaba’s charges in a comfortable position to qualify for Morocco 2015.
“It will be a different match - that is for sure; they will come out fighting, but I'm sure we will have a good plan for them,” says Meyiwa.
“We did the most difficult thing, to go to Congo and get a clear victory is not a joke. Here we will stay calm and just do the basics right.”
The match against Congo takes place at the Peter Mokoba Stadium on Wednesday, 15 October at 20:05.
