De Reuck – Nothing Really Bigger
Mamelodi Sundowns defender Rushine De Reuck, who is part of the Bafana Bafana squad for the Cosafa Cup, says there’s no bigger honour than representing your country.
The 2019/2020 PSL Defender of the Season, who joined Sundowns from Maritzburg United, has also been named as a vice-captain, with AmaZulu’s Veli Mothwa leading the team.
De Reuck says it’s been a lifelong dream to wear the national jersey, and he wants to remain a regular member now that he’s earned call ups.
“It’s obviously a big honour to be here, because there’s a lot of other footballers who I think, are really, really good who’re not here,” De Reuck told SAFA media.
“So it’s a big honour to just be here, you know, because it’s a lifelong dream for me, and I want to continue being part of the national team.
“Also, being part of a winning team, your application is very important. Whoever comes into the setup, they must just grab it with both hands, you know, because, I mean, there’s nothing really bigger than playing for your national team.
“So, you know, we need to work together as a team, fight for each other, and then, you know, I’m sure we can build a winning team.”
Bafana start their Cosafa campaign on Tuesday when they face Botswana in Gqeberha.
