Modise continues to perform well at club level and has two great consecutive seasons in the colours of Sundowns but is yet to get a recall to the national setup.

The former Orlando Pirates play-maker still believes he has what it takes to play in the midfield for Shakes Mashaba's side.

"When the time to retire from the national team comes I will say so,” said the 32-year-old midfielder, according to the PSL Twitter's account.

“For now I still have ambition to play."

The midfielder has had an excellent 2014/15 season for Sundowns and has been rewarded with three PSL awards - Midfielder of the Season, the Players' Player of the Season and Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament.

With seven PSL goals to his name this season, Modise has been a colossal figure for the team this season and admits the pressure to perform is tough. 

"It's been tough to wake up every day and be consistent.

“I'm grateful to be given the chance to play.”

Modise last represented the national team against Poland in Warsaw, in an international friendly on October 12, 2012.
