Cavin Johnson on Ndumiso Mabena call-up

Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson believes Ndumiso Mabena is more than deserving of his national team call-up.
The Dikwena striker got the late call after Dino Ndlovu picked up an injury playing for his Cypriot club over the weekend.
Mabena now joins Prince Nxumalo, Tokelo Rantie and Thamsanqa Gabuza as the strikers for the double-header 2017 Afcon qualifiers against Cameroon.
“He has been doing well and deserves it,” Johnson tells KickOff.com. “The national coach [Shakes Mashaba] has seen his ability and as a club we happy for him.
“If you look at the big games we played against Pirates, Sundowns and Chiefs where we had to change and play different tactics, Mabena has had the ability to adapt to playing a different role and I have no doubt he will settle in very well and play any role needed.”
