Despite his goal making life difficult for South Africa in Group A, the talented 20-year-old did take the time to speak kindly of his opponents after the match. 

"I'm relieved now. I'm happy and relieved," he said, according to Goal

"I thought I should score a goal in order for the team to score a goal.

"I scored the goal and the team won. I'm very happy. South Africa was a good team. The South African players looked in good condition."

Klopp To Sell Another Five Players?

Kubo's Japan will take on Mexico next, while David Notoane's men will face France in their next encounter at the Games.
