CHERRIES striker Tokelo Rantie has been named in the South Africa squad for a friendly against Brazil in Johannesburg next month.

Rantie will be hoping to feature when Bafana Bafana host the five-times World Cup winners at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday, March 5.

The 24-year-old, who joined Cherries in a club record transfer from Swedish club Malmo in August, has netted four goals in 17 appearances for his country, including a stunning individual effort in a 1-1 draw with Morocco in October.

His last cap came during a 1-0 win over Spain in a friendly in November. Rantie will fly to South Africa following Cherries’ Championship clash with Doncaster on March 1.

Then she doesn't rates Howe's judgement either, not a real supporter I feel, just a moaner when things dont go her way. We have a future plan at Bournemouth and TK is part of that.

I think we can all see TK has things to improve on as do all players, I've said on here numerous times let's judge him next season when he has settled in had a pre season and feels more comfortable cos it can't of been easy for him, we have seen in glimpses what he is capable of doing and once he finds his feet I reckon we could have a pretty decent player in him
