Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala has his sights on achieving 100 caps for Bafana Bafana.

According to KickOff, Tshabalala has 88 caps for South Africa and is more than eager to keep on donning the national colours.

“I still want to play for the national team,” the 30-year-old said.

“I know I will not just get a call-up without having worked very hard and I don’t expect any favours.

“I just have to work hard and earn it, and it all starts here at Chiefs. I just pray that I will be injury-free this season.”

Meanwhile, Tshabalala has not been called up to the Shakes Mashaba’s side since Bafana Bafana’s catastrophic CHAN tournament last year.

Shabba earned his first cap in 2006 against Egypt.
