TS Galaxy midfielder Ethan Brooks is aiming to "grow and learn" from recent events while on international duty with Bafana Bafana as the DStv Premiership returns.
Brooks' TS Galaxy host Swallows FC in a league encounter at the Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.
The 20-year-old was left in tears as Bafana Bafana suffered heartbreak at the hands of Ghana in a controversial Group G encounter last week.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's key encounter, Brooks insists that he is aiming to use his recent disappointment moving forward.
"I'm taking it day by day as every day it is starting to get easier," Brooks said.
"It happens in football, so I just have to grow and learn from this and take the experience from it.
"It was a good run and I enjoyed it and I hope I can go back there very soon and we can continue where we left off."
Brooks added that he was aiming to contribute to the scoring charts when the league resumes.
"The guys are working hard in training, especially I and I did say before the start of the season that I would like to score more goals," Brooks added.
"The team as a whole has been scoring so hopefully one of these days I can also add to the scoresheet."
Kick-off is at 15:30.
