Erasmus missed out on the chance to represent South Africa when Bafana played Sudan and Nigeria in their first AFCON qualifying games.

Shakes Mashaba was criticized on not choosing the forward with the 64-year-old admitting that the former SuperSport United striker found his form a bit too late when he announced his first squad as Bafana coach.

The 24-year-old has already netted 10 goals this season for the Sea Robbers in all competitions and now the striker is relishing his chance to represent his country.

Here is Erasmus’ heartfelt message via his Official Instagram account:

I’ve come a long way from where I’ve been and taking a look back at how my career has gone thus far I can only be thankful and grateful, firstly to God, my gorgeous fiancé @la_lauyaju [Lauren] my 2 beautiful girls Nayhla and Alaïa, who I live for and try and give my best to make them proud.

My parents and sister and lastly my fans it’s because of you I can be a role model to other young aspiring future football stars of our beautiful country #TheJourneyContinues.
