However, he scored a lovely free kick on Tuesday, which seemed to serve as a timely reminder of his quality and has been added as the 25th member of the squad. Modiba excelled in the Nedbank Ke Yona initiative and is testament to the opportunities available for hard-working young players in the country. Baxter and Modiba are well acquainted from their time together at Supersport United prior to Baxter’s appointment as national coach. It will not be the youngster’s first taste of the national team as he previously featured on March, May at the Cosafa Cup and September against Libya as a subsitute.
