Cape Town - SuperSport United marksman Jeremy Brockie expressed his delight after receiving a call-up to the New Zealand national team for the Oceania Nations Cup.

Brockie will catch a flight home immediately after the Nedbank Cup final against Orlando Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

The 28-year-old striker will also be absent for the PSL Awards on Monday, where he is nominated for the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament.

Brockie has scored 27 goals in 51 starts for Matsatsantsa since joining the Premiership club in December 2014.

"I missed out on the last couple of games and to be back [in the squad] is an honour and a privilege. It is something that I'm looking forward to and hopefully I can end the season on a high here [in South Africa]," he told The Sowetan.

"My main aim is winning the trophy first before any personal accolade. Obviously, it is something that I will have to thank my team-mates for, because when you get nominated or win awards, the players around you are the ones that helped you.

"I will take that if it comes, but the main goal is getting the trophy. I even bought new boots for Saturday and hopefully they have goals in them."
