The Bafana rookie was called up again for the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Ghana, because of his outstanding achievements at the COSAFA competition according to Sport24.

Brooks was then called up again for this week's back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia. Usually, players who are in the national team have a better shot at being selected for opportunities overseas.

"My hope is to continue doing what I am doing and perform at the highest level, and then hopefully, with these performances get the chance to go overseas," says Brooks.

KickOff reports that prior to any potential move to Europe in the near future, the Bafana international disclosed that he will seek advice from national team coach Broos, who is a Belgian native.

Thulani Hlatshwayo accepts being left out of the Bafana Bafana squad

Briefly News previously reported that Thulani 'Tyson' Hlatshwayo was once the captain of Bafana Bafana but since coach Hugo Broos came to take over, he's been left out of the squad.

Hlatshwayo has not been putting up the best of performances for Orlando Pirates and makes defensive errors often. The defender has somewhat accepted that he is not making the national team but he knows that improving will lead to a call-up from Broos.

Tyson says that having good form with Orlando Pirates will get him recalled to the national team. He respects Broos' decision to bring new players into the national squad.
