(CNN) -- Football fans all over the world will be anticipating this Friday's 2010 FIFA World Cup draw, where supporters will find out who their nation will be pitted against in South Africa next June.

Few will be looking forward to it more than South Africa captain Aaron Mokoena, who will be hoping to lead his country to glory on home soil in the continent's first World Cup.

CNN will be talking to the Bafana Bafana star, and we are giving you the chance to question the man himself. What do you want to ask Aaron Mokoena? Send us your questions by using the comment box at the bottom of the page.

South Africa's youngest-ever representative for South Africa, Mokoena made his international debut at the age of 18 against Botswana in 1999 and has since gone onto lead his country and hold the appearance record with 92 caps.

Bafana Bafana's respectable showing in the 2009's Confederation Cup has come in the middle of a less than impressive run of friendly performances.

The re-appointment of World Cup-winning Brazilian coach Carlos Alberto Parreira is a move aimed at re-igniting hopes that Mokoena and the likes of Steven Pienaar and Benni McCarthy can still do the country's football fans proud.

Mokoena plays for English Premier League side Portsmouth after previous spells with Blackburn Rovers, Belgian clubs Germinal Beerschot and Racing Genk and Dutch side Ajax.

So let CNN know what you would like to ask him. How far can South Africa go at the World Cup? Who will win the tournament? Can Portsmouth stay up in the Premier League?
