After an impressive individual start to the season, TS Galaxy centre back Given Msimango has set his sights on donning the green and gold of Bafana Bafana.

Msimango has been one of the standout performers for The Rockets this season. The 25-year-old put-in two Man of the Match performances against Richards Bay and Kaizer Chiefs respectively.

The former South Africa Under 23 international was a surprise omission from Broos’ squads in September and November but the player remains undeterred in his goal.

"My biggest individual goal this season is to be part of the national team," Msimango told KickOff.

"I feel I’m at that stage of my career where I want that to happen and I’m prepared to earn it. There’s still a lot of work to do, but hopefully it’s something I can achieve in the near future."

With just seven goals conceded in 12 league games so far, The Rockets boast one of the strongest defenses in the premiership. Only Mamelodi Sundowns (5) and Richards Bay (6) have conceded less, while Orlando Pirates is tied with Galaxy at seven.

Msimango has started all 12 and played every minute of TS Galaxy’s matches so far. He will be hoping to continue that impressive run when the Rockets meet bottom of the table Maritzburg United on 30 December for the return of DStv Premiership action.

Meanwhile, Bafana Bafana have a mountain to climb in the race for Afcon qualification when they face  Liberia in March.
