Ndlovu wants better Bafana experience

Bafana Bafana's Dino Ndlovu seen here tussling with David Luis of Brazil in a Fifa friendly match between the two nations at Estadio Morumbí on Friday in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Ndlovu dislocated his shoulder during this match

Bafana Bafana forward Dino Ndlovu is positive he can give a better account of himself against Poland than he did on his debut in Brazil.

The Israel-based striker was one of several newcomers given a run-out by Gordon Igesund when the former Moroka Swallows coach kickstarted his national tenure on September 7.

But Ndlovu's first cap for his country was a bitter-sweet experience as the 22-year-old's starting appearance against the Samba Boys was short-lived due to a dislocated shoulder suffered early on.

However, the ex-Bloemfontein Celtic ace has recovered and is determined to make up for his previous disappointment when Igesund's side clash with the Poles in Warsaw on Friday night.

"It feels good to be back. My injury has healed and I have played some matches for my club and I feel great," Ndlovu told SAFA's official website.

"I am looking forward to the clash against Poland which I believe will not be an easy match up," said Ndlovu.

"I would have loved to do well against Brazil but my injury prevented me. I believe if we use the same mentality that we had against Brazil we should be fine.

"The spirit is high which should perhaps work in our favour."
