thumbnail Hello,

Orlando Pirates and Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has told Goal that reaching the final of the Caf Champions League is a dream come true for him.

However, Meyiwa feels that is not enough if he is to convince the world that he's one of the best goalkeepers in Africa.

"It is an achievement on its own to be in the final of the Caf Champions League, but I personally want to build on that by winning it," Meyiwa told Goal.

"By so doing that I will get the recognition as the best keeper in Africa, and I should do myself, my teammates and the team proud," he said.

The 26-year-old Meyiwa said that an extra motivation for them to want to go out there and win this tournament is because they want their names to be cast in stone where no one is going to forget them.

"The coach always tells us that we always remember someone that wins the final. So, even if we get to the final we won't be remembered. We need to make sure that people remember us in the next 10 or 20 years," added Meyiwa.
