Dolly Reminiscent Of Quinton Fortune

In 1998, a young Quinton Fortune saw his thunderous shot ricochet off the crossbar in a group match against Denmark at the 1998 World Cup... Something similar happened last night. Did you see it?

Fast-forward to 18 years later, in an Olympic Games group match, another young left-footed South African midfielder in the shape of Keagan Dolly had an eerily similar shot come off the woodwork.

Guess who the opposition was... You guessed right... it was Denmark! How's that for a coincidence? 

After that particular World Cup, Fortune went on to enjoy an illustrious career in England, which saw him don the red and white of Manchester United, where he won the Premier League title too. 

Could last night's happenings be a sign that Dolly is on his way to greater things? Yes, if his current form is anything to go by... 

The Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder has been in scintillating form at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and his displays could very well attract attention from clubs outside South Africa. 

Dolly has long been tipped to make the move abroad, and his participation in the Olympics may be the perfect platform for him to be scouted.

What have you made of Dolly's displays in Rio? Is it perhaps time for him to move abroad?
