Stuart Baxter’s youthful Bafana Bafana at the four-nation tournament in Zambia means that players like Keagan Dolly are considered as senior players. 

Speaking all the way from Zambia, Dolly noted that he is relishing the opportunity to help the younger players adjust to life in the national team. 

“I’m happy to be in a position where I can inspire the younger players in the team and tell them about life in Europe,” said the 25-year-old Montpellier midfielder.

“The younger players need to know there is more to life than just the PSL and that there is more to aspire towards.

The creative midfielder was not involved in Bafana’s first game against Angola where the South Africans needed penalties to progress to the finals against Zambia. However, he declared that he was happy for the younger players that have been given an opportunity to play. 

“It was good seeing the young players take their opportunity. The match against Zambia is going to be a tough one, I have played in that field during my time Mamelodi Sundowns so I know it won’t be an easy match,” he added.

The Bafana international further declared that following his move to the French League 1 side Montpellier over a year ago, he has become a better player owing to the intensity of European football.

“I’m a better player than I was. I’ve improved my decision-making. I’ve learnt to take my football more seriously and to improve my awareness of the game,” added the midfielder.

Bafana Bafana will meet Zambia in the final of the four-nation tournament.
