Kaizer Chiefs star Keagan Dolly admits he has found confidence after his recent performances for Chiefs and is excited to be back with the national team.
The forward was left out of cpach Hugo Broos’ first few squads as he looked to get himself fit following his move from France to Naturena.
He has, however, put his head down, worked hard and managed to force his way back into the side with some scintillating performances for the Glamour Boys, scoring five goals, including a match-winning brace against Orlando Pirates in this past weekend’s Soweto derby.
Now back in the squad, Dolly says he is excited and the squad are fully focused on the task at hand.
“I’m excited to be back and coming into camp you can see the boys are really excited,” says Dolly.
“They are up for the challenge and, for me, it is always good to represent your country. The past few games I have been enjoying myself and scoring goals, so I’m coming into camp with confidence. For me, it is just to help where I can, focus on the game which is Thursday against Zimbabwe and try to help the team where I can,” Dolly noted.
The 28-year-old last played for Bafana against Sao Tome and Principe during the doomed Afcon qualification and will now be hoping for joy instead of agony wearing the national team jersey.
“The mentality going into each game should be about knowing that there is no easy game, especially now with Zimbabwe. This is the most important one and we shouldn’t focus on Ghana.
“Firstly, we must deal with Zimbabwe. Our problem in the past was that when we saw a team like Cape Verde or Sao Tome, we thought it would be easy. These countries want to come here and prove a point and I think for us it is just to keep the focus and perform on the day,” said Dolly.
