Lepasa: I can contribute to Bafana


TS Galaxy star player Zakhele Lepasa has reflected on his Bafana Bafana call-up as they prepare for the COSAFA Cup quarterfinals in Durban.

Zakhele says it is still unreal to be in the national team and his family is looking forward to seeing him in the gold and green colours against Botswana on Sunday.

"It's good for me and my family. I can tell you they are looking forward to seeing me playing for Bafana, as much as it is a challenge it's something I've always dreamed of," he said.

"In the past two days the guys have been welcoming. I know it won't be easy to perform like I did before but I'm ready for a challenge and I'm enjoying this experience with the guys."

Lepasa believes he can add value to the team, especially with his hunger, and feels he can address the lack of goals within the team.

"With my hunger I believe I can contribute in terms of creating goals for the team, which is something that has been a challenge for us."
