Johannesburg - Recent Bafana Bafana call-up, Darren Keet, says that he’s excited to team up with Itumeleng Khune and get the opportunity to represent his country.
 
The 23-year-old shot-stopper has been in impressive form for his club in Belgium, KV Kortijk, since breaking into their first team last season and has now been rewarded for his performances by Bafana coach, Gordon Igesund.

Keet, formerly of Wits in the PSL, has been called up alongside Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Khune, and says that he’s still looking to learn.

“I spoke to Gordon before the last camp against Poland and Kenya and he said to me that he knows I’ve been doing well and that he just wanted to let me know that he was following my progress. He told me that I must keep doing what I’m doing and then I officially found out this time when we got our call ups.

“I’ve worked with Itu before, so that’s not something new to me, but it’s always something that I look forward to. I am always willing to learn and improve and with the goalkeepers in South Africa like Josephs and Sandilands, who have played a lot longer than I have, I can learn a lot. I’m always excited to train with him, to be with all of the players and also to represent my country,” said Keet.

The keeper has been ever present in the Kortrijk goal this season, playing in all 14 of their league games as they clawed their way up to fifth place in the Belgian Pro League.

Keet is one was of several new faces in Igesund’s side, with strikers, Katlego Mashego and Kermit Erasmus, of Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United, as well as Platinum Stars man, Thuso Phala, and Thanduyise Khuboni of Golden Arrows.
