Bafana Bafana left-back Luvolwethu Mpeta says he is hoping to make his debut for the national team when they take on Sudan on Saturday at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The 24-year-old, who has started all 15 matches for Platinum Stars this season and started 32 last season in all competitions, says he saw his call-up coming and while many are predicting that Sibusiso Khumalo will get the nod ahead of Mpeta, the latter hopes he gets a run.
“First of all, I think all the players have one goal and every player wants to play. I do believe I still have a chance to start,” he says.
“It is very tough breaking into the starting eleven because players here are competitive because everyone wants to play, so it is very tough,” Mpeta adds.
