“Look, the first day of the camp, we sorted out our differences when we got here. We fixed all tensions, we put it aside and we stuck to one goal and that was to win the match. The coach made it clear that we shouldn’t focus on what people say, we shouldn’t let the negativity get to us and we had a good session with a guy who came in to talk to us and we all made commitments to our team,” Dolly revealed on SAFA’s official website.

“You could see how hard the guys fought today (Saturday) to revive ourselves and to show the people of South Africa that we are still willing to fight for the badge and the flag and I think we did ourselves justice today (Saturday),” he added.
