SA U23s Conclude Saudi Arabia Tour Without A Win

The South African under-23 side continued their preparations for the Olympics with a 1-1 draw against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday afternoon.

Lelethu Skelem opened the scoring for David Notoane's before Abdulharaham Ghareeb levelled matters for the hosts.

Amaglug-glug had the best opportunity of the game thus far in the 20th minute when Promise Mkhuma's curler hit the woodwork.

Jamie Webber then tried his luck from long-range in the 38th minute but his shot lost power on its way to the goalkeeper after it took a deflection.

Skelem broke the deadlock in the 56th minute when he slipped his way past his marker on the edge of the box before coolly slotting past the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

However, the Saudis equalised with ten minutes to go, shortly after Zakhele Lepasa had a goal ruled out for offside. The hosts won a penalty, which Ghareeb converted to make matters even.

Soon after, Fagrie Lakay received the ball from the middle and broke away from his marker sprinting towards goal, dribbled past the oppositions goalkeeper, however, his shot was denied by the woodwork.
