Cape Town - Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo hopes his recent good form for the Buccaneers will earn him a call-up to the next Bafana Bafana squad.
Mhlongo took over the number-one position at Pirates in unfortunate circumstances, replacing the late Senzo Meyiwa after his tragic death last year.
Despite the situation, Mhlongo took the opportunity with both gloves and has been impressive as the Bucs shot stopper for the last eight months.
His form has led to calls for him to be included in the South African squad, which have so far gone unheeded, but the 24-year-old is happy that he is being noticed.
"Personally I feel like I have been doing well but to say I am knocking on the Bafana Bafana door... I think it is the coach's decision," he told Soccer Laduma.
"Yes, it is every player's dream to represent your country at national level and that is also my dream.
"I just told myself I have to keep on playing, doing well at club level and, whatever happens, I have to respect the decision of the coaches."
