Bafana stars enjoying camp

2010-03-16 13:20

Johannesburg - Two of Bafana Bafana's local-based players have revealed that the squad is being pushed to the limits during the Brazil training camp.

Tlou Segolela and Thulani Serero, who were both delighted to make the final cut for the trip, said that coach Carlos Alberto Parreira is ensuring that the hosts will be one of the fittest sides at the World Cup.

"The training has been tough but we are happy to be here because we will be the fittest players in the tournament," Segolela told the Sowetan.

"We are not spared one bit - it is like we are preparing for war. The centre here in Brazil is great, we do a lot of gym work, exercises and speed training.

"We are all aware that we have to work hard to impress the technical staff because you still have some of the Europe-based players who also want to be in the final World Cup squad. The support we have been getting from the technical staff has been great."

Ajax Cape Town starlet Serero is planning to impress the technical team at the camp in order to force himself into the World Cup squad.

"We are all dreaming about being part of the final squad. Some of us are still young, even if we don't make the final squad for the tournament in June, there is still the 2014 World Cup in Brazil," he said.

"The camp here will help us gain experience. It's good that coach Carlos Alberto Parreira has brought a lot of youngsters too, which augurs well for the 2014 World Cup campaign."
