SuperSport are placed sixth on the PSL standings with left with five games to wrap up their PSL campaign and the South Africa international says it is exciting times for every national team player.

Bafana Bafana were pitted against Cote d’Ivoire, Namibia and Morocco during Friday's Afcon draw and Furman is keen to scure a spot in the final 23-man squad for the tournament.

“There’s a carrot dangling for everyone. There’s something great at the end of these games,” he added.

However, SuperSport's focus is on the Tshwane derby on Wednesday night against Mamelodi Sundowns, who are desperately looking for a win to close the gap on leaders, Orlando Pirates at the top of the log table.

“Everyone is going to be trying to put their best foot forward and be on their best form to make sure that they are in the Afcon squad,” concluded the 30-year-old.
