AmaZulu's new striker Andre De Jong has expressed his excitement to play in the PSL and is hoping to emulate two compatriots at Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
The New Zealand-born striker said after joining AmaZulu that he fancies his chances of represent his country again because of the standard and reputation of the Absa Premiership.
 
"I've got two caps for New Zealand and I would love to be called up again," De Jong said.
 
 
"We have games coming up in November against Ireland, hopefully if I can play well here and it will put me in a good space to be recalled because of the standard of this league."
 
De Jong played with Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie in the national team and against former Usuthu striker Emiliano Tade in the New Zealand league. 
 
Both those players have made an impact in the PSL and De Jong wants to follow in their footsteps on the pitch and win the hearts of South Africans.
 
"If I can emulate half of what Brockie and Tade have done, that would be amazing. I'm not putting any pressure on myself, I like to play and have fun, you see a smile on my face, that is the most important thing to me."
