South African FA not giving up on Everton's Pienaar

South Africa's FA aren't giving up on Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar.

Pienaar quit Bafana Bafana on October 2, just months before his home nation hosts the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

South Africa FA chief executive Robin Petersen said: "We wish somehow he would change his mind.

"I want to sit down with Steven and find out his reasons. We'd love to have him - he's clearly our best player."
