Klate hanging on to SWC hope
Johannesburg - SuperSport United winger Daine Klate is still hanging on to hope he will feature for Bafana Bafana at the Soccer World Cup.
The 25-year-old was not selected in Carlos Alberto Parreira's latest squad for training camps in May, but the former Transnet School of Excellence player is still a believer in his now slim chances of going to the World Cup.
Klate told Soccer Week: "You know anything is possible and if it is meant for me to be there, then somehow I will be there. If it's not meant to be then I won't be there.
"Having said that, I would love to play in the World Cup, it's every player's dream I think to play in the World Cup. If all else fails and I'm not there then I just have to get over it and move on with my career.
"It's not going to be the end of the world."
Klate did travel with the local-based squad to Brazil for a training camp in March but revealed he had hoped to achieve more.
He added: "I had a good camp and worked as hard as every player there did. Unfortunately, I didn't play as much as I would have liked to. There were some big games that I wasn't part of and I feel that I didn't really get a chance to show what I can do in terms of the main games.
"But I think the team is on the right track having been there in Brazil. Having seen the progress that we are making, I think Bafana will be ready for the World Cup."
