CAPE TOWN - Bafana Bafana star Tokelo Rantie says his move to Bournemouth is the best thing he can do for his career.

The former Orlando Pirates footballer played in Sweden before making the move to England in the transfer window.

He joined the national team ahead of their preparations for their World Cup Qualifier with Botswana in Durban on Saturday.

Rantie says he looking forward to learning new things in England.

"I personally believe that it's a great move for me and my career. We all know what players can learn in England. It's a great league and hopefully I will manage to do the same thing that I have been doing in Malmö."

Rantie says while there is a lot at stake in Saturday's match against Botswana, he isn't letting the pressure get to him.

"I don't feel any pressure at all. I believe if you feel any pressure, you won't be able to perform. The pressure will always be there, but I can control it."
