Keet privileged to experience Bafana debut

KV Kortrijk goalkeeper Darren Keet was delighted with making his Bafana debut against Zimbabwe at the Orlando Stadium

Despite conceding two goals and losing against Zimbabwe, Keet said he is privileged for the opportunity he got from Bafana coach Gordon Igesund.

“I am delighted for the opportunity I got to finally make my debut for the national team. This is what I have always wanted and it feels good that I am really achieving this dream,” he told the media.

There is high competition in the goalkeeping department with Itumeleng Khune being the number one and the likes of Senzo Meyiwa excelling at Orlando Pirates. There is also SA reserve Wayne Sandilands and the young SuperSport United keeper Ronwen Williams. It seems that Keet will have to be patient.

“I am aware there are many great goalkeepers in South Africa and that is why I will continue working hard and learning from them. I think it is a great thing that we are blessed in that department,” he said.

24-year-old Keet arrived in South Africa with the foreign based players two weeks back, where he had an opportunity to train with Khune, Sandilands and Meyiwa.
