Shakes Mashaba announced his Bafana Bafana squad last week and many were surprised by the inclusion of 17-year-old youngster, Fagrie Lakay from Santos.

According to KickOff, Sainfiet regards Moeketsi Sekola as one of Free State players that has to be in the national set-up.

“I see him selecting players from Santos in the National First Division, but I don't see him selecting our players,” said Saintfiet.

“Moketsi has scored four goals already this season and I think he has to be in the squad and I think some of the Free State Stars players deserves to be selected as well.”

The Free State coach believes that Mashaba has been more concerned with other teams and have not been keeping an eye on Ea Lla Koto players.

Bafana are due to play Congo in back-to-back games in the AFCON qualifying rounds. The 2015 tournament will held in Morocco between January 17 and February 7.

Bafana Bafana fixtures:

Saturday, October 11, Congo v SA (Pointe Noire) at 16:30.

Wednesday, October 15, SA vs Congo (Peter Mokaba Stadium) at 20:05.
