Johannesburg - Attacking Bafana Bafana midfielder Siphelele Ntshangase is currently enjoying his rich vein of form for both club and country.

And the Black Leopards star insists that this is a reward for his hard work, following an impressive performance for Bafana against Mauritius at the weekend.

South Africa defeated Mauritius 3-0 in the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday.

A brace from Ntshangase and a goal from Thamsanqa Gabuza were enough to hand Shakes Mashaba’s men the advantage ahead of their second leg outing early next month.

The 22-year-old ace also hailed his team-mates for their contributions in the match.

“I’m very delighted with the way I performed and also scoring two goals,” said Ntshangase.

“Credit must go to the coach and all my team-mates for their positive contributions; I couldn’t have done it without them.

“I have been working hard at club level and even when I got a national team call-up to represent my country, I have been showing my commitment at training.

“And I believe that this is a reward for me.”

Bafana will travel to Mauritius for their second leg encounter on July 3.
