"I am so excited," Vilakazi tells

"I have been working hard for this for a long time. I guess this was only my right time to get the call-up.

"I will just keep doing the basics and continue to work hard."

The 23-year-old, who played his 100th game in the PSL against Ajax Cape Town last month, says his mother is naturally also delighted with his inclusion.

"She heard about my call-up on the news before I could even tell her," he says.

"She believes in God and urged me to thank God for everything and continue to pray for more success in my football career."
