Kaizer Chiefs and Amaglug-glug goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune goes into the Rio Olympic Games with an impressive record ahead of their clash with Brazil.
The 29-year-old is one of Owen Da Gama’s two over-aged players and will start against hosts Brazil on Thursday night.
FIFA’s official website dug a bit deeper into the numbers of the Olympic tournament and revealed Khune’s record.
The shot-stopper is the joint-most experienced player going into the competition, having represented his country on 75 occasions so far.
Khune is the joint-highest capped player alongside Nigeria’s John Obi Mikel, with the duo beating Barcelona star Neymar, who is in second place after the 24-year-old Brazil captain has represented Brazil on 70 occasions so far.
It will be a tricky evening for Khune and Co. because Neymar is regarded as the most lethal player going into the tournament. The Barca forward holds the record for most senior international goals after netting 46 times for Brazil so far.
Amaglug-glug face Brazil at the Estadio Nacional de Brasilia, at 21:00 (SA time).
