Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Lebohang Maboe has revealed he is delighted and grateful to be a part of the Bafana Bafana squad to take on Libya on March 24.
Bafana are set to take on the Mediterranean Knights in a crucial Group E Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Tunisia.
The South African national side requires a point to advance to the tournament in Egypt later this year, whereas, the Libyans need to take all three points.
Nonetheless, Maboe could prove to be a key performer for Bafana such is his good form for the Brazilians in all competitions.
Thus far in 2018/19, the 24-year-old has managed nine goals in all competitions as well as recording a number of assists as well.
The former Maritzburg United star told reporters: "I'm excited by the call-up, I've been working toward the goal to be part of the Bafana Bafana squad.
"I'm proud that I'm finally getting recognition and hopefully we will go there and get a positive result."
Speaking after scoring in the 2-1 win over the Team of Choice last Tuesday, he concluded sadly: "It was hard, these people gave me an opportunity."
