Hugo Broos characterised Orlando Pirates midfielder Miguel Timm as a “leader” after including him in the Bafana Bafana squad for the first time for this month’s friendlies against Mozambique and Angola.

Bafana Bafana will play Mozambique on November 17 and Angola on November 20, both at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Timm’s call-up follows his Man-of-the-Match performance for the Buccaneers in the MTN8 final, which they won 1-0 at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

He has been a standout performer for Pirates all season, and the 30-year-old is now set to compete for a spot in the Bafana Bafana midfield. “He (Timm) deserves it, he is also a leader on the field so he gets his chance,” said Broos, on the announcement of his final 23-man squad on Tuesday.

“His biggest quality is that he is a player who stays in his position. We have looked for several months for a player like this. He is a defensive midfielder, who is always there when his team loses the ball. He always recovers so many balls in front of his defence, and he also has a good passing range.”

Monnapule Saleng, who scored the game-winning goal in the MTN8 final and has been in brilliant form for the Buccaneers, was also named to the final squad. “What he did in the last month was amazing,” said Broos.

“He has been very strong on the right side of attack and he scores goals.

“We know Saleng from last year, playing with the Olympic team (in Tokyo), but then we didn’t see him anymore. Now he is back again and we are seeing his qualities, he is fast and he can eliminate his man on the wing and can score. We have to given him a chance and see what he can do at that (international) level.”

Bafana squad:

Goalkeepers: Ronwen Williams, Veli Mothwa, Melusi Buthelezi

Defenders: Sydney Mobbie, Thibang Phete, Siyanda Xulu, Siyanda Msani, Rushine De Reuck, Thapelo Morena, Aubrey modiba, Grant Kekana

Midfielders: Miguel Timm, Njabulo Blom, Teboho Mokoena, Luke Le Roux, Monnapule Saleng

Strikers: Khanyisa Mayo, Lyle Foster, Mihali Mayambela, Fagrie Lakay, Themba Zwane, Zakhele Lepasa, Kgaogelo Sekgota
