Cape Town - SuperSport United skipper Dean Furman has expressed his delight after making a return to the Bafana Bafana setup.

Furman was selected for the national team that will face Gambia in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.

Bafana will need nothing short of a miracle to qualify for the showpiece after one loss and three draws in qualifying Group M.

"Representing your country is the pinnacle of your career. It's always a pleasure to be involved with Bafana Bafana," Furman told KickOff.

"I am delighted to be back with Bafana Bafana. Hard work never stops. I am delighted to get involved again and am hoping that we will get results in Gambia.

"Every Bafana Bafana trip is an exciting one. We know where we stand in the group at the moment and it is not ideal."
