Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho
Kekana has hinted he is eyeing adding an AFCON crown to the CAF
Champions League and Super Cup he won with the Brazilians.
Kekana was a part of the squad that qualified for the Africa Cup of
Nations last Sunday when they defeated Libya 2-1 in a Group E tie in
Percy Tau proved to be the difference as he scored a brace while
Darren Keet gave a superb performance in goal for the national side.
Nonetheless, the Sundowns destroyer also nearly had an impact when he
almost scored from distance after coming on as a substitute.
The 33-year-old won the CCL and Super Cup in 2016 and 2017 respectively and was a major influence in both successes.
Speaking to Kickoff, he said: "It's a special feeling. I'm
very proud of some of the achievements I've achieved so far in my
football career and qualifying for major tournaments is always one of
the goals I have.
"When I check, this is one of the things I had written in my notes
when I was young, that I want to see myself qualifying to play at AFCON.
"Going to AFCON will be something special for me. I've ticked many
boxes in my career, I've won the league, the Champions League, Super Cup
and now I was part of the team that helped South Africa qualify for
AFCON. It's really a special moment."
