Kekana: I will be looking to give my all

Grant Kekana is eager to help Bafana qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

South Africa face Morocco in their first qualifying match at the Moulay Abdellah Stadium on Thursday night.

Bafana failed to qualify for the most recent AFCON as well as the 2022 World Cup and are hell bent on rectifying those wrongs.

The 29-year-old Mamelodi Sundowns centre-back has made his way into the Bafana set-up for the very first time and is eager to play his part.

He said in the Sowetan: "It's my first call-up ever. It sort of hit me by surprise but I was happy to be called-up... I have always wanted to represent my country, now I have been afforded the chance.

"So, I will be looking to give my all. I will leave everything on the field."

Kekana added: "The past few days have been good... the mood in camp has been good. The players are ready. We’ve prepared well. There’s that camaraderie here and it’s something I expected because a number of players here I played with at my previous clubs, so that made it easy for me to gel with the team."
