Modiba is in the Bafana Bafana set-up for the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Seychelles.

Bafana face the African minnows at FNB Stadium on Saturday - kick-off is at 15:00 - before squaring off in a return leg three days later at the Stade Linite.

Speaking to KickOff website, the United star said: "I think I've grown so much, my game has improved because I am learning a lot from the guys.

"Having to rub shoulders with players from abroad helps me learn from them. I am understanding the game better and better, so it's always great to be in the team and rub shoulders with those guys.

"The competition is always healthy. If I am playing left-back there's Hlanti and there's Maela. They are doing well for their clubs and I know that I can always learn a thing or two from them.

"Then if I am playing left wing, Pule is there. He is doing well for Pirates and I know we can push one another because we are still new in the set-up.

"There's also Dolly, who is not in the squad. But I always read his game and maybe I can improve a few things in my game when I watch him."
