Furman says South Africa must look to life after Pienaar

South Africa captain Steven Pienaar has retired from international football. The 30-year-old's decision was announced by coach Gordon Igesund on Tuesday, as he unveiled his Bafana Bafana squad to face Poland and Kenya in friendlies next week.

Dean Furman has been named in South Africa's squad for next week's friendlies. He made his debut for the national side in a friendly international in Brazil last month and feels - though Steven Pienaar will be a big loss - they have to move on.
