Although playing for Bafana Bafana is every players’ dream, Orlando Pirates forward Thembinkosi Lorch will not be disappointed if he doesn’t get a call-up.

Ahead of Stuart Baxter naming his squad to take part in the four nation’s tournament from March 18-27 in Zambia, Lorch says he is not ready to represent the country.

“Every player wants to play for Bafana Bafana or represent the national team, but for me I don’t think I’m ready to play for the national team,” Lorch admitted.

“If you look, I didn’t start the season well, because of injuries. It’s just now that I’m getting my confidence and that’s why I’m saying I’m not ready,” he added.

Lorch has cemented his place in the Pirates squad since the club recalled him from his loan spell with Chippa United in January 2017.
