Rovers official website caught up with South African International Dean Furman, after he returned to training at Cantley Park.

Dean was with Bongani Khumalo on duty for his country as they drew 1-1 in a friendly game in Morocco.

Dean explains what its like to play for your country. “It’s a big honour for me and I love going to the games. As for what’s its like it all depends on where we are playing and how much travel in needed. This dictates what the week of a game is like. I often have to get to know the players because there are often new players picked for the side. We have a couple of training sessions before the game as we prepare for the side we are facing. After the game it is say your goodbyes and then travel home till the next game."

After the disappointment of South Africa not making the World Cup Finals in Brazil, what’s next?

“It was a major disappointment to us all and its hard watching the results coming now, knowing we should really have been there. So although it was not meant to be for us we have to move on and internationally there is a local tournament coming up but I think the coach is planning on using home based players for this, which give Bongani and myself getting a break from the national team, which let us concentrate on our club football. 

"The coach has indicated that he would call us up next March, when the African Qualifiers start again. So now I can fully focus on everything Doncaster Rovers and look forward to some big games in the Championship”
