Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Stanton Fredericks says that he is hopeful that he will still be called up to the Bafana Bafana squad by Stuart Baxter.
But the attacking midfielder said that since his move to his new club, FC Moscow , he has not been called up to the national team, which was not the case when he was still playing for Amakhosi.
"Hopefully if I do well here I will also be noticed. I love playing for my country, if Baxter needs me, he knows I will be there," Stigga told Soccer-Laduma.
The player also admitted that money was the main reason behind his move to Russia.
"The money was the attraction. There is so much money in this league (Russia) at the moment," Fredericks .
Stigga said that even the birth of his first born son could not stop him from joining FC Moscow because of the financial security for his family which was more important at this time of his career.
Just before he went to Russia, Fredericks was linked to the big spending Sundowns but he rubbished the rumour by saying that he was not interested in signing for a local team and he had set his sight on a overseas' move.
Teams from England and Portugal were after his signature but the midfielder choose the Russia because of the financial benefit.
The former Wits star has settled well and scored a well taken goal on his full debut for his new club.
He realises, however, that he will have to keep on working hard to keep his place in the team as there are a number of players who play in his position (Stigga is being used in his favourite position - the second striker, at Moscow).
"Even my own team-mates are not happy that I am in the team because they see me as a threat. I just get on with the business. You have to be strong," said a determined Stigga.
