Cape Town - Teenage sensation Luther Singh says that the senior national call up to join the Bafana Bafana squad is a "dream come true."

Singh was a notable surprise call up as assistant coach Owen da Gama announced a 25-man squad that will face Guinea-Bissau and Angola in back-to-back international friendlies at the end of the month (March 25 and 28).

According to KickOff, Singh is looking forward to rubbing shoulders with Bafana Bafana regulars Keagan Dolly and Thulani Serrero.

"It's been a busy six months. It's a dream come true to play for Bafana," Singh said.

"I never saw myself playing for Bafana at age 19. My target was 21.

"But then again, I have worked hard, so I'm not surprised.

"I'll get an opportunity to be with Keagan Dolly.

"There’s Thulani Serero as well. I have looked up to these players. Training with them will be a big thing for me."

Defenders: Rama Mphahlele, Rivaldo Coetzee, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Eric Mathoho, Lorenzo Gordinho, Diamond Thopola, Tebogo Langerman.
