Ndlovu will be hoping he carry over his club form into the national team after scoring 18 goals in 21 games for Chinese outfit Zhejiang Greentown.
‘For me I would be selfish if I put my desires first. Whether I get a chance or not‚ as long as the team wins and we get the three points‚’ Ndlovu told the media.
‘If I get a chance to play‚ so be it. If I don’t and we win‚ I’ll be happy.
‘But I’ll have raised up my hand in my club level to deserve a call-up. So nothing is better than that.
‘I’m really happy with my club form so far. Or else the coach would never have called me here.
‘But I came here to help the guys who are the strikers in the squad with me – Lebo [Mothiba] and Percy [Tau]. They are both young boys with a bright future and I think I can help them.’
Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has called up Cape Town City winger Gift Links as a replacement for injured Mamelodi Sundowns forward Sibusiso Vilakazi.
