The big strong striker has the potential to be the number one striker in the Bafana Bafana set up as he is one of the lethal traditional centre-forward in South Africa football, his only competition is France-based RS Strasbourg Alsace center-forward Lebohang Mothiba Mothiba.

It is very rare nowadays to find a traditional centre-forward as a lot of wingers are being played as centre-forward due to the lack of traditional strikers in domestic football, you find coaches playing with a false number 9 a system that Manchester City's Pep Guardiola uses in the English Premiership League.

That inspires a lot of coaches to follow the same route.
