Parker was impressive yesterday when Bafana put two goals past the visiting team’s goalkeeper to hand South Africa a morale booster ahead of the Afcon tournament in Ghana next year January.
“It was a great feeling to wear the Bafana Bafana jersey walking onto the pitch.
“That was a big moment in my career and it will motivate me to work harder and take my game to another level.
“I never expected to be in the starting line-up, but when the coach called out my name for the first eleven I told myself that this is my chance to impress.
“I think we were the better team on the day and deserved the victory. I will continue to work hard at Thanda in the hope that I will win more caps with Bafana Bafana soon.”
Two-goal hero Teko Modise also expressed excitement about being voted 'Man of the Match'.
He too added that this would serve to motivate him to continue working harder.
