Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane says he is living the dream after making his 50th cap for his country.

Letsholonyane made his 50th appearance when he came on in the dying moments of Bafana’s 2-1 win over Sudan on Saturday.

Yeye, who has been in fine form for the Amakhosi this season, says that there's been plenty of people responsible for his success, including his coaches, teammates, fans and supporters.

"I'm happy and honoured to have reached this milestone. I'm happy that I was honoured for living my dream,” Soccer Laduma website quotes him as saying.

“I wanted to play for my country when I was young and never thought about this day, it eventually came and I'm so, so happy. I would like to thank God for having all the people who contributed to my career for the strength and patience to shape me to become that I am today.

"I can't forget the Coaches who I worked with both in the clubs and national team set-up. I would not have reached this without the players I played with for all the years. The fans and the South Africans have supported me even when things were not going well. My family has been a pillar of support in this journey."
