Mokoena has been called up by Amajita coach Thabo Senong for the upcoming U-20 World Cup in South Korea, with Baxter hopeful he can spare the player's services next month.

“He is doing nicely. We brought him along in a couple of games with a few substitutions here and there, and he played in CAF,” said Baxter.

“I would like to send him to the World Cup with the U-20s. Our injury list will dictate if we can or we can't and his preparation with the team if the coach can work that out.

“But undoubtedly he is a talented boy that I am sure South African football [fans] will get pleasure to watch.”
